Info Request Update
Bargaining Update – Sessions yesterday and today. The OSU team brought a serious proposal, which
was even decently close to CGE’s. From the blog (about Tuesday): “They are starting out with a proposal
to increase summer health insurance coverage to 85%, cover the same percentage during family or
medical leave periods of up to 3 months, and modestly increase the minimum salary to $3350 from
the current rate of $3000 (monthly rate at 1.0 FTE). Most impressively, OSU indicated that they were
interested in covering 85% of the mandatory fees and 100% of the matriculation and international student
orientation fees.” NEXT WEEK: Bargaining on Tuesday the 12th (11 AM at Westmin) and Friday the
15th (9 AM at MU).

with Lauren about the usual food and drink logistics. She’ll organize some volunteers too. Eric is working
