The University of Guelph and the University of Guelph Faculty Association have been engaged in negotiating a renewal contract since the end of March 2011. Progress is being made, and both parties remain committed to reaching a collective agreement. Toward this end, the parties have mutually agreed to engage the services of a third-party mediator. The parties are pleased that William Kaplan has agreed to assist in their continued discussions at the bargaining table.
As you will know, the current collective agreement expires June 30, 2011. Please be assured that the terms and conditions of the collective agreement will continue as the parties are at mediation.
