CAUT Defense Fund Update
On a call yesterday, CAUT Defense Fund Trustees approved a package of benefits and other support for the BFA in the case of a strike. The package includes financial benefits such as daily benefit payments, group insured benefit payments, and a strike support loan as well as support from other Trustees on the picket line. The Negotiating Team will continue to work with the Defense Fund to communicate its needs.
The Negotiating Team and Executive Committee believe that a deal is still possible and will do everything in its power to avert job action. The Negotiating Team will meet with the Employer and provincially appointed conciliator on September 26 and 28, if not sooner.
Save the Date: September 22
On September 22, Linda Davis, member of the provincial Gender Wage Gap Steering Committee, will visit Brescia sometime between 3:00 and 4:30 to discuss the report recommendations. We anticipate media presence at this event, and it is important that we have many members as possible attend. Please save the date and plan to join us.
