SPU and staff ratify collective agreement with variable workweek; UOttawa, UQÀM share agreement updates

Saint Paul University and the Administrative Support Personnel of Saint Paul University have ratified a new collective agreement. The new agreement ratifies the university’s variable work week, through which employees work 28 hours during the week while retaining their standard salary and benefits. The variable work week was first piloted at the university in 2022. “The agreement not only ensures fair and competitive compensation, but also reinforces our commitment to fostering a positive working environment and supporting the well-being of our employees,” said SPU Vice-Rector of Administration Eric Martin. Two other universities announced new agreements: The Université du Québec à Montréal signed a collective agreement with the Syndicat des professeurs et professeures de l’UQÀM, while the University of Ottawa secured an agreement with the University of Ottawa’s Students’ Union.
