Ryerson has a strong history of collaborative collective bargaining and positive working relationships. We are committed problem solvers who successfully negotiate collective agreements with all campus unions, which involve incremental changes that meet the needs of all parties. The Ryerson All-Union Coalition strongly supports the ontario College`s current striking faculties` tariff claims. These teachers, trainers, consultants and librarians work for quality education and quality jobs. It is regrettable that the College`s Management Board forced them to take the difficult decision to go on strike. Ryerson University entered into a new collective agreement with CUPE Local 233 in October 2018. The new collective agreement is now online: disclaimer: online versions of these collective agreements are provided for the convenient reference of members of trade union groups, leaders and other interested parties. When a conflict is found between these versions and official documents, the conditions of official documents are given priority. Look for updates on the negotiations and read the supporting documents provided so that you can understand your collective agreement.
