The University of Windsor has released the details of the final offer that it presented to the Windsor University Faculty Association on July 15th.

The three year deal has no wage increases in the first two years, but there is a 3% wage increase in the third year.

There is also a lump sum payment of $1,000 in the first and second year.

In an open letter to the university community, president Alan Wildeman says that “the offer was presented as a final offer. The University moved significantly beyond its previous monetary proposal.”

He says that the University’s bargaining team was informed by WUFA on Friday, July 18th that this offer was rejected.

Wildeman says “As a result, effective July 28th, 2014, and until there is a new collective agreement, the University will be implementing the terms and conditions of our July 15th offer. WUFA was advised of this development on July 22nd, 2014. WUFA was also advised in writing that the administration remains willing and able to continue collective bargaining. It is simply not true that the University has walked away from the bargaining table. Rather, the University is not prepared to bargain with itself in the face of WUFA’s unrealistic monetary expectations.”

The University and WUFA have been at the bargaining table since May and the bargaining teams have met on 30 occasions, including 20 days in mediation.
