Seniority Policy Grievance

January 22, 2021

Greetings CUPE 1975 members,

The CUPE 1975 Grievance Committee has been working to try and resolve the policy grievance we filed on many of our members’ behalf.  We have made some headway and we are hopeful we may be able to get a resolve without going to arbitration.

This policy grievance was filed for our members whose lay offs were extended past the point of receiving the 85% of salary from the University.  If you fell into that category and there were less senior members working or called back to work ahead of you, we will need to have you contact us.

To be eligible, you would have to have the same skills and qualifications of the position which is currently being performed by someone else with less seniority.  If you fall into this category or think you might, please reach out to the Union office (  to discuss with us by February 5, 2021.
