We are the University of Saskatchewan Sessional Lecturers` Union. Through collective bargaining, we strive to provide our members with the fair wages and working conditions they deserve. Our members never stop working for their students and we never stop defending their rights. Fair representation for session teachers improves the quality of our students` training and strengthens our university community. As a representative of the Sessionsal Lecturers at the University of Saskatchewan, CUPE 3287`s membership voted strongly on September 2, 2020, but not by an overwhelming majority, in favour of accepting the University`s proposed settlement offer. This offer includes: Did you know that as a U of S Sessional Lecturer and member of CUPE 3287: All other terms of our currently expired collective agreement will remain the same (although we will be back at the bargaining table relatively quickly, as shown in item 7 above). Update (October 6, 2020): The University`s Board of Governors voted today to ratify the agreement described above. According to U of S Labour Relations, the 2% increase in the scholarship should be included in members` salaries from October 15, and the cumulative wage increase, retroactive to September, should be included in your October 30 cheque. However, management will continue to monitor and respond to electronic communications and voicemail that remain in our office telephone line (306-966-7023). If you have any questions or concerns, particularly regarding the current policies of the university in the context of the COVID 19 situation, do not hesitate to contact the Union. Since we only learn the university`s answers when they are available, we may not have all the answers, but we are monitoring the situation closely and will do our best to help.
The Union office at McLean Hall Room 35 will not be occupied regularly from Monday, March 16 and will continue until further notice.
