Sheridan senior management remains committed to the “Journey” for our college to become a university by 2017 - 2019. Local 244 continues to monitor these developments closely and we can report that in anticipation of changing needs for our faculty that grow out of our university status a new working group has been formed: The Workplace Equity Committee or “WE Committee” for short. This group includes the Executive and PSB Stewards of Local 244 along with a number of concerned faculty members from the Pilon School of Business. We will be seeking membership from other Faculties.
Key agenda items for this group include:
Once we have clearly established the timelines that will impact our bargaining process it is our intention to survey faculty to get a clear understanding of their position on the key principles that will underpin the bargaining process.
Local 244 and the WE Committee group will remain vigilant on these issues and report on all relevant updates.
