Bargaining teams at Trent University and @cupe3908 Unit 1 have reached a preliminary agreement on a new collective agreement. Details of the provisional agreement will be published after ratification by both parties. #trentu The terms of the interim agreement have not been made public, but job security has been a key issue, with the union saying part-time instructors should be fired every four months and re-apply for their positions. The contracts indicated by the university can extend up to three years. In a tweet Friday morning, the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 3908 (Unit 1) said a new preliminary agreement was reached early Friday and a planned Sunday rally was canceled. “Thank you all for your support, planned presence, presence on social media and for contacting the employer directly,” the union explained. .
