A collective agreement is a legally binding discussion paper that defines all your benefits (including salaries), rights and obligations as McMaster employees. All responsibilities and obligations of the employer (McMaster) are also exposed. On September 12, as part of the collective agreement on your orientation, I will give a conference on your rights and benefits on September 12. During the orientation session, I will provide physical copies of the information discussed. Contact me after the date of the event if you could not participate. I will also be holding an information meeting on the use of health services in October. Health care continues like the old collective agreement with a few additions.
