Press Release: Labour Unions Rally in the Bowl to send message to the New U of S President

Rally In The Bowl

The Following is a message from the ASPA negotiating team to it’s members:

Dear Valued ASPA Member,

We want to thank you all very much for taking the time to attend one of the information sessions, reading updates and providing feedback over the last few weeks; the input and guidance you provided the bargaining team was invaluable. You spoke loud and clear with only 9% of attendees at the information sessions showing any support for the current University offer. Throughout your comments there was a common thread about feeling disrespected by the employer and with your continued support we want to change that.

Many members also wanted to know what the other bargaining units thought of the offer presented to ASPA.  We consulted almost every single bargaining unit on campus very recently. The other unions clearly saw the disrespect shining through the offer as well and are ready to show their support for our members. So united we will stand alongside our colleagues from the other bargaining units on campus.  On Monday October 26th at noon we will be holding a public rally in the bowl to welcome the new President and to ask him to send his team back to the table to negotiate with the respect and dignity we deserve. The other bargaining units will be joining and voicing their support in front of the entire campus community and local media. We hope that this rally will bring positive change to the practices of our Human Resource department on campus under the new leadership of President Stoicheff.

We need you to come out to the bowl and bring your colleagues, whether they are ASPA, USFA, CUPE, PSAC or PAIRS and lets send a positive message of change and respect together. We heard you loud and clear and this is your opportunity to make sure the employer hears you too.

ASPA will be providing a free burger lunch for the first 500 attendees. We humbly ask you to spend your lunch hour with us. It is our sincere hope that an overwhelming crowd will bring the University back to the bargaining table not to dictate terms as they have, but rather to take part in a fair and equitable negotiation. We will see you October 26th at 12 noon for lunch in the bowl.

In solidarity,

Your ASPA Executive and Bargaining Team

ASPA’s New Brown Bag Lunch Series

ASPA is proud to announce a new series of events for members. This fall ASPA is launching the Brown Bag lunch series. These lunch-hour sessions are a place for members to come together and learn about different aspects of our collective agreement. Brown Bag events will happen several times a year and will address a wide array of issues that affect you, the member.

ASPA hopes that this special series will provide another avenue for you to raise questions and engage in conversations about the future of ASPA and the privileges that come with our collective agreement.

The first Brown Bag session took place November 26th when current ASPA President Paola Chiste and former President Chloe Corcoran spent time discussing the process of contract negotiations and why we should care. If you want to know more about the Brown Bag series email us at aspa@usask.ca or call Annetta in the ASPA office at 306-966-2471. Also keep an eye on your email for the invitations to the different events as they become available over the next year.
