Mediated Talks End: OPSEU Staff Unit Leaves Table

 The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) Staff Unit participated in four days of mediated talks this week (September 14-17, 2010).

While the NOSM Bargaining Team was prepared to bargain through the weekend, the OPSEU Staff Unit left the bargaining table at 4 p.m. this afternoon.

Although considerable progress was made this week, the parties were unable to resolve all outstanding matters and reach a first collective agreement.

NOSM has proposed that the two sides resume bargaining again September 30 and October 1, 2010, and is awaiting response from the OPSEU Staff Unit.  The School remains willing to resume bargaining at any time.

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.

                                                                      – 30 – 

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine is committed to the education of high quality physicians and health professionals, and to international recognition as a leader in distributed, learning-centered, community-engaged education and research.
