CUPE 4163 is known as the Education Employees Union of the University of Victoria. The room consists of three “components,” each with its own tariff language. The unanticipated closure, described in section 15.5 of the collective agreement between UVSS and the United Steelworkers union, stipulates that if MSRs may receive three days` pay beyond dismissal due to supply disturbances, unforeseen environmental conditions, “God records” or other reasons beyond workers` control. The labour/labour relations team works closely with all human resources executives and advisors on all issues related to the interpretation and application of collective agreements. A meeting between key members of UVSS and UVic executives, including UVic`s Executive Directors and Associate Vice President Jim Dunston, will be held by video conference on Friday, March 20. The team works closely with all representatives of the university`s workers` group and disseminates information on ongoing negotiations and forwards all other work-related issues to the UVic community. “We anticipate a gradual restart of operations, depending on timelines, order requirements and staffing,” James` email said. President – Lisa Sheppard (email to her!) VP – Vakant (e-mail to the Vice-President!)

The EIS employs approximately 150 students and permanent employees, most of whom are unionized with the Steel Workers Union. This announcement came hours after B.C declared a health emergency, with the number of reported cases increasing to 186, including 12 on Vancouver Island. Public health officials encourage people to wash their hands and consider social inse evacuatation, and to keep everyone with symptoms at home. For more information, visit the website of the B.C.
UVic Center for Disease Control announced last week that from Monday, March 16, the university will leave personal courses for the remainder of the semester, shortly after the cancellation of all classes with more than 250 students. The faculty is required to communicate to students their specific plans for the remainder of the semester by March 19. Students residing in UVic residences were informed today by email that the move date has been extended to March 27, with students able to stay until April 9 and be available for possible extensions for release dates until April 24. Most of the campus grocery stores were closed, the other premises operated with limited capacity and fewer hours. “I understand it`s rushed and uncomfortable, but we`re doing our best to ensure that students can be reimbursed in a rapidly fluctuating environment,” Eaton said in the email.
