    Arbitration Decision posted – We have achieved sessional seniority

    After many months of waiting, at 4:30 pm today we received a decision from Vince Ready. Like any Final Offer Selection process we have won some arguments and lost others. As workers, I believe we can stand tall knowing our efforts have brought an end to an inequity that has plagued SFU since 1965. We have won one of the strongest and most comprehensive sessional seniority provisions in North America. Our collective action will allow hundreds of sessional instructors to have the confidence they can stand up and speak for themselves without fear of being fired. We have already emailed the employer to arrange for the implementation of seniority rights. TSSU has been fighting for sessional seniority since our inception

This unwillingness to change is a continuation of SFU Administration’s pattern of behaviour over the last 15 years of Labour Relations. On November 27th, your Contract Committee and the SFU Administration appeared before arbitrator Vince Ready for full-day FOS hearing…” Click here for
