Collective Agreement Questions? Drop in for a Session

AESES is pleased to announce that we are trialing a new type of service for our members – an informal drop-in session! This is your chance to speak to an AESES representative face-to-face during working hours at your campus.

Drop in and speak with our Member Services Officer, Colleen Thompson, and receive guidance/advice on workplace issues. All inquiries are confidential and your questions and concerns will not be shared with anyone else without your approval.

Potential (general) questions you could pose and have answered include:

  • What is a Collective Agreement and where do I find ours?
  • What are the different types of leaves available to me?
  • When does seniority apply?
  • What happens if the Collective Agreement is silent on an issue?
  • Anything else you’re curious/unclear about or want more information on

Drop-in sessions will be offered on:

  • Wednesday, September 18th. At UM Fort Garry. In Room 524, University Centre. Between 9am and 1pm.
  • Wednesday, September 25th. At UM Bannatyne. In Room 209, Brodie. Between 9am and 1pm.
