Mobilization 2024

CUPEU members have made it clear that hybrid / flexible work arrangements are a priority. As such, the negotiation committee has been adamant about including appropriate language in our next Collective Agreement. Unfortunately, the University has refused to even discuss the topic and so it is time to show them that we mean business.

While the status quo is insufficient, we can nonetheless officially request specific Hybrid Work Arrangements as spelled out in the Hybrid Work Guidelines*. We feel that the best way to make our voices heard is for every single one of us who desires a more flexible work arrangement, or who is currently allowed to work from home and does not want to lose this clearly mutually beneficial arrangement, join us in an email campaign.

*Hybrid work guidelines

11. Should an Employee want to modify or terminate an approved Hybrid Work Agreement, their manager will review and determine if the modification or termination is appropriate or feasible.
12. In the event of any disagreement regarding a Hybrid Work request, or should a
manager or employee have questions about the application of these Guidelines, the
employee and/or manager may contact ELR.
