Sheridan College Support Staff Collective Agreement

Posted: October 7, 2021 in Uncategorized

The depth and breadth of knowledge of our local leaders throughout 24 college is immense. This is what we have seen at our departmental and educational meetings in action, through the tutoring shared in our Google Groups and through the committee work in which individuals participate throughout the year on behalf of the division. What we enjoyed was a way to compile and exchange information about our department, including useful tools and resources available to residents that would benefit new leaders. Thus was born the introductory textbook to OPSEU and CAAT-A, abbreviated faculty college manual. DivEx hopes that this manual will help facilitate the transition of new CAAT A executives to their roles by providing structured information about our department, our members and the resources available to all residents. This manual can serve as a guide to quick access to information, a tool for building local capacity and facilitating internal organization through member training. With the new Articles 26.10 D and 26.10 E of the collective agreement, many colleges have not approved the Union`s interpretation for the implementation of the register of sub-charges. As a result, OPSEU submitted 3 CENTRAL COMPLAINTS from the Union in autumn 2018. Two complaints were heard by Arbitrator Knopf and were decided in August 2019. The CEC refused to consolidate the union`s third – and probably the most important – complaint that priority hiring is based on courses or sets of private lessons. While this union complaint is still ongoing, we are awaiting a decision on an individual complaint from Niagara College that addresses the same issue.

The first complaint heard by Knopf calls into question the question of the register itself: who entertains it, what information should be included in it and what information should be shared? The judgment says that colleges must keep the registry. The register must include all courses taught from October 2017 by a partial load faculty, regardless of their status, when they taught the course (part-time, partial load, full-time, session). In other words, part-time courses must also be recorded in the register. For courses taught before October 2017, colleges are not required to import the history of teaching from the faculty. If the faculty can prove that it taught a course given before October 2017, it is also considered a previously taught course in the register. . . .
