Here’s something you don’t see too often…a contract agreement five months before the old one expires.
That’s the case between Laurentian University and it’s staff union…a tentative deal on a 3-year contract effective July 1st, 2012.
L-U president Dominic Giroux says many ambitious initiatives are being launched in 2012 and he’s pleased this early agreement, if ratified, will allow the University and it’s staff to focus their energies on them.
LUSU represents 235 staff in the clerical , technical, administrative, service, security and maintenance areas.
Ratifications votes will be held in the coming weeks, at which time contract details will be released.
