Members of CUPE 3902 Unit 3 have voted to ratify their renewal collective agreement with the University of Toronto.

CUPE 3902 Unit 3 represents approximately 1,200 sessional instructors at the University of Toronto. These employees are engaged in teaching, demonstrating, tutoring and marking, on employment contracts of less than one year.

Details of the agreement were presented to employees at a CUPE 3902 membership meeting on Nov. 28. The ratification vote started immediately following the meeting and continued on all three campuses until Dec. 1. 

“I'm very pleased that members of CUPE 3902 Unit 3 have ratified this agreement,” Kelly Hannah-Moffat, U of T's vice-president of human resources and equity, said. “I'd like to thank the university and union bargaining teams for their hard work and long hours.” 

The university has 23 collective agreements with 11 different unions; 13 agreements are up for renewal in 2017.
