Laurentian University and Staff Union Ratify Collective Agreement - July 12, 2024

Collective agreement spans 3 years 

The Laurentian University Staff Union (LUSU) and Laurentian University’s Board of Governors have voted to ratify a new three year collective agreement. The agreement will be in place until June 30, 2027. 

The agreement will see LUSU members receiving annual salary increases of 4%, as of July 1, 2024. A copy of the agreement will be shared on once finalized. 

“This agreement marks a key step in Laurentian’s recovery, enabling us to move forward in a positive way with the execution of our new strategic plan. We are thankful for the work of both bargaining committees and are now focused on delivering a dynamic student experience this fall,” said Dr. Lynn Wells, Laurentian University President and Vice-Chancellor.

"With the ratification of a new collective agreement, we are now able to redirect all our attention towards providing support to students, in both their academic and research goals,” said Tom Fenske, President of LUSU.

LUSU represents approximately 230 staff members at Laurentian University.
