Tentative agreement reached between Laurentian University and staff union

Proposed agreement spans 3 years

(June 28, 2024) - The Laurentian University Staff Union (LUSU) and Laurentian University have reached a tentative collective agreement. Members of LUSU will soon have the opportunity to vote for ratification of the tentative agreement. The LUSU bargaining team unanimously recommends ratification.

“This tentative agreement is great news for our employees and the entire Laurentian community. I want to thank our partners at LUSU for their hard work and cooperation as well as the administrative bargaining team for their support throughout this process” said Dr. Lynn Wells, Laurentian University President and Vice Chancellor. As outlined in the 2024-2029 Strategic Plan, Laurentian University identified four strategic directions to guide decision making. One of these directions is defined as “Valuing and Supporting Our People” and we’re proud to put that direction into action.”

"This is a positive sign, indicating that Laurentian's leadership is demonstrating a commitment to reinvesting in its most valuable asset: its employees,” said Tom Fenske, President of LUSU.

If ratified, the 3-year agreement would remain in effect until June 30, 2027.

LUSU represents approximately 230 staff members at Laurentian University.
