Monday, December 1, 2008


Written by Scott Gilbert

The parties reached a tentative settlement early Saturday morning. The deal must be ratified by the union’s membership and the Board of Governors at U of G.

The Union will release details of the agreement following ratification.

“The last few months of negotiations have been difficult. Our members are glad to be finishing exams with their students and not walking the picket line,” said Toni Xerri, the local’s Chief Negotiator.”

“We are grateful to the community members who showed their support for us - your help was critical to reaching a deal,” Xerri added.

The Union will present the settlement to their membership and hold a ratification vote in the coming weeks.

    What’s in it for the undergraduate students besides a hike in our tuition next year to pay for salary and benefit increases?!?

    CUPE does the undergraduate population more harm than good. I have yet to hear what they actually do for undergraduate students.

    Some of the people on this website would find a way to complain about a weather report.

    Do you ever get tired of whining to your computer?

    George. I find it amusing that you never comment on the Administration. You know that Alistair got a raise of close to $100,000 this spring, right? Where do you think that money comes from? And he is not the only one. All the senior admin got huge raises. Is Alistair worth over $400,000 in your opinion?

    Good for Alistair, get paid what you're worth!

    George, you forgot to add "But CUPE members, you should not have better benefits or make much more over the poverty line because you shouldn't be paid what you are worth." Thought I would fill in the blanks for you.
