In December 2013, the parties reached an agreement on a major topic of discussion – the separation of food and dining services from residences. Some elements such as weekend operations in food and dining services have been put aside for now and will be addressed when the parties start discussing monetary issues.
Work schedules and working hours have been the focus of discussions in recent meetings. This has led to a positive outcome as the parties have ratified the French version of the article as it relates to trades and powerhouse groups on both campuses. The English version is expected to be ratified in January.
