The employer seemed to appreciate the idea of a $700 expense account, but he finally responded to our proposal and offered a 0% pay increase for each year. We did not agree and we warned the employer that we would seek mediation after the Essential Services agreement was concluded. What does ACIFA do for you? Read the latest CAUT/ACPPU newsletter – Employers make pay increases – Your bargaining team met with the employer on Wednesday, January 23, but we haven`t made much progress. The main themes remain money items and new articles dealing with contracting, contracting and pay equity. The employer is still not prepared to seriously address these issues. Don`t hesitate to contact a member of your commission or AUPE resource staff with questions, comments or concerns. Your bargaining committee is aimed at achieving pay parity with our colleagues at the Prairie Regional College. We are no less than them, and they should not be overthrown – instead, we want us all to stand up in solidarity.
