That all changed on October 4, when we signed a collective agreement with Gaba. We now have a shiny new grievance policy which legally requires the company to reply to individual grievances in a fair and prompt manner.
Union members can now bring problems to a GU representative who will contact Gaba via email, fax or mail. If necessary, meetings can still be held to help resolve the problem. We’re hoping that this will allow the GU to raise more issues with Gaba, and lead to real improvements for instructors who are experiencing problems.
We’ve already been able to solve a major problem for one instructor under the system.
