NOSM University and OPSEU Local 677, Unit 2, have ratified a new collective agreement.

Local 677 represents 161 staff including office, clerical, administrative, technical, and service employees at NOSM University. This is their fifth collective agreement. 

“Both OPSEU/SEFPO members and NOSM University's Board of Governors (Executive Committee) voted in favour of ratifying the new collective agreement on May 14,” the school said in a news release. “The agreement is in effect from May 1, 2024, until April 30, 2028, and includes increases in compensation to recognize the rising cost of living as well as enhancements to the workers’ health benefits package.”

Sue Lebeau, chair of the NOSM board of governors, thanked the negotiating teams for “reaching an agreement that will ultimately benefit learners and communities across the North.” A similar sentiment was expressed by Jason Lind, vice-president of OPSEU/SEFPO Local 677, Unit 2.
