2021 Academic Employee Contract Negotiations

2021 Academic Employee Contract Negotiations

The current academic employee contract between Ontario’s 24 community colleges and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) expires on Thursday, September 30, 2021. On Wednesday, July 7 and Thursday, July 8, the two bargaining teams (management and OPSEU) met through Zoom, marking the beginning of negotiations for a collective agreement.

As one of Ontario’s community colleges, Centennial College does not bargain directly with its faculty members. The provincial government mandates the College Employer Council act as the bargaining agent representing Ontario’s public colleges (the employers) in centralized collective bargaining with unionized staff. OPSEU represents three college employee collective bargaining groups: Academic Employees (CAAT-A), Full-time Support Staff and Part-time Support Staff. 

Throughout the bargaining process, the College Employer Council updates the employers (Ontario’s colleges) and interested community members through its website.
