CBEBC Decentralizes Its Training Component

n a departure from tradition, the Collective Bargaining & Economic Benefits Committee is now offering on-site bargaining training for faculty association members. Over the past month, CAUT collective bargaining officers Pierre Choquette and Christiane Tardif have given interactive training sessions for faculty bargaining teams at the University of Northern British Columbia and at Ryerson Polytechnic University. Sessions at other universities are planned. On-site training can focus on the most important issues at the local level, and the committee hopes more and more people will benefit from these intensive sessions. In addition to this new service, the committee continues to offer the collective bargaining conference and the annual grievance/arbitration conference. The conferences focus on policy matters and provide a training component. For further information, faculty association representatives should contact Christiane Tardif, email:; tel: 613-820-2270.
