As a result, MAFA has publicly announced that if an interim agreement is not reached before the union`s strike period of 12:01 a.m February, the faculty and librarians will strike as planned. February 3, 2020 – 12:10 p.m. .m.The union`s 12:01 .m strike deadline passed without the two parties having reached interim agreements. January 31, 2020The university has received a formal strike notice from full-time and part-time bargaining units. A strike begins on Monday, February 3 at 12:01 p.m. .m, unless an interim agreement has been reached by then. The negotiating teams met a total of 15 times. Progress has been made on a number of issues; For example, an agreement in principle was reached on the introduction of gender-neutral language into the collective agreement. Negotiations on other issues have been positive and substantial, but she believes that the support of a mediator will benefit both sides at this stage. The collective agreement between Modesto City Schools and Modesto Teachers` Association is an agreement ratified by both parties, unless expressly mentioned in the documented mcS-MTA agreement.
It is important to recognize that new collective agreements for full-time and part-time faculties are considered within the framework of overall financial sustainability and allow the university to support the needs of all other stakeholders, including students, staff of other bargaining units, un bargained staff and public funders. The university is encouraged to see further meetings with the conciliation officer and remains convinced that new arrangements can be reached in due course. In the near future, these two agreements will be available on this site in a more browser-friendly format, and finally, hard copies will be produced and distributed. The university expects further discussions with the conciliator to focus on areas of mutual interest and pave the way for new agreements that are fair, fair and financially viable for both parties. Local officials have tried to reach all elements of the FBU`s policy. Since GMFRS was not prepared to meet all of these conditions and so as not to jeopardize national discussions or brigade officers elsewhere, the agreement is only for a limited period of time subject to review.
