NOSM and OPSEU Staff Unit Heading Back to Table with Provincially-Appointed Mediator

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) and the OPSEU Staff Unit have agreed to resume bargaining November 1, 2010 in Thunder Bay. The negotiations will be assisted by a provincially-appointed mediator.

NOSM’s Dean, Dr. Roger Strasser, is hopeful this round of talks will bring about an acceptable resolution for both parties. ”The Northern Ontario School of Medicine is returning to the table next week with the goal of reaching a fair and competitive first collective agreement with the OPSEU Staff Unit, and ending the current labour disruption,” he said.

NOSM remains committed to reaching a first collective agreement with the OPSEU Staff Unit which fairly reflects the unique nature of NOSM and its workforce and that will work for everyone – putting learners first, and addressing fairness and equity within available fiscal resources.
