Following the Pre-Bargaining Conference held in November, College Faculty Locals held Local Demand Set Meetings where they ranked their top priorities. The purpose of the College Faculty Final Demand Set Meeting is to review the compiled local demands and vote and rank the final central demands that will set the union’s agenda in bargaining your new collective agreement.
In accordance with the College Faculty Negotiating Procedures and OPSEU/SEFPO Policy, all Delegates are determined according to OPSEU/SEFPO’s Convention formula. Any Alternate(s) accompanying Delegates are at the Local’s expense. Head Office will cover an Alternate’s expense only where the Alternate attends instead of and in place of the Delegate.
At your Local demand set meeting, ensure that you have quorum in accordance with the OPSEU/SEFPO Constitution and that the priority demands are clearly recorded on the Demand Setting Report form.
**Please Note: As this meeting is being held virtually, no expenses outside of time off (if required) will be reimbursed except in special circumstances where expenses have been pre-approved. To inquire further about pre-approval, please email email@example.com.
