New Contract for Med School

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine and the union representing full-time faculty and professional librarians and professional staff at the school (Unit 1, OPSEU Local 677) voted last month to ratify a tentative agreement after nine months of negotiations.
The four-year deal, in effect from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2015, provides for annual salary increases of 1.5% in the first two years, followed by 2% increases in the final two years.
“The agreement also contains benefit and other improvements and the union was able to turn back a number of unacceptable employer proposals, thanks to the strong support of members,” union negotiator Geoffrey Hudson said.
