Tru Open Learning Collective Agreement

„The reason we advance layoffs for support employees is the longer notice period required by the CUPE collective agreement,“ Phillips said. CUPE Local 4879 represents TRU employees who work as system analysts, accountants, cashiers, booksellers, registration and licensing vendors, maintenance and procurement staff, library technicians, auxiliary staff and open assistance staff. Members of the Open Learning Faculty are teachers in the field of open learning at TRU and the role of the Open Learning Faculty Member is to actively encourage, support and guide students in their university studies. Members of the Open Learning Faculty must be trained in learning, have a complete knowledge of the subject and demonstrate a positive, open and caring attitude in their dealings with students. Meetings are expected to continue throughout the week. In an email, Vice President of Administration and Finance Matt Milovick told KTW that the university was considering layoffs for members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), but is notinding specific positions. He stated that department heads and department heads had been asked to identify redundancy posts on the basis of potentially lower workloads due to the reduction in enrolments in each of their respective territories. Milovick said KTW previously the university will probably be forced to make some cuts in the fall, the extent of which will depend on enrollment. We have between 20 and 30 students a year.

These figures are only estimates and the actual price figures may be more or less important than the estimated figures. Indeed, while 80 opinions are available, it is not possible that many job losses, given that the university would be able to revoke layoffs, should improve the decline in enrolment and the financial situation. Members of the Open Learning Faculty Member (Web) are, but are not limited to: the post-secondary institution intends to send redundancy notices with a four-month delay, and management meets with approximately 80 support staff who are expected to be affected as of Wednesday, as indicated in an internal letter to staff. -This story was updated on June 3rd with comments from TRU`s Vice President of Administration and Finance, Matt Milovick, we preferably look for PhD candidates in a relevant discipline (master`s degree) with significant academic experience in this field, and documented excellence to help students achieve their goals. In addition to excellent oral and written communication skills, privileged candidates will have demonstrated skills and skills in distance learning. At the moment, no redundancies are planned for members of the TRU Faculty Association (TRUFA), Milovick said. The university is also exploring other options instead of layoffs, including Furloughs, job-sharing and retirement options, and government programs, the letter says. You must register for the fiscal year (April 1 to March 31) during which the study waiver was approved. If you finish your job at TRU-OL before the end of a course, you must return all course documents in perfect condition. „While it is understandable that the notice period is difficult for those affected, it allows us to prepare for future uncertainties and we really hope that this will only be a precautionary step,“ Larry Phillips, executive director of human resources at TRU, said in the letter. Tru is conducting similar discussions on layoffs with his other groups of workers, the letter says.

International registration arrives in the autumn semester, but is expected to decline by about 30% at present, as the pandemic complicates travel, while national figures are expected to reach 5%.
