OTTAWA, ON – Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Contact Instructors (CIs) at Carleton University, represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4600, have reached tentative settlements with the administration, averting a strike. Last week, an agreement was also reached for Carleton University support staff, members of CUPE 2424.
The bargaining committees for both Unit 1 TAs and Unit 2 Contract Instructors will recommend the proposed settlements to the members later this week.
Details of the proposed collective agreements will not be released until CUPE 4600 members have had an opportunity to review all details and vote on the recommendations. The University Board of Directors will also vote to ratify the agreement.
In addition, CUPE 4600 stands in solidarity with both the Carleton Undergraduate Student Association and the Graduate Student Association, who are still fighting to have the Carleton Administration release their fees.
