The University of Guelph and the Professional Staff Association (PSA), which negotiates terms and conditions of employment for more than 800 professional and managerial employees, have reached a tentative agreement for a renewed compact agreement.

The previous agreement expired May 1.

“The parties’ negotiation teams worked diligently to reach an agreement that is fair and that recognizes the important contributions of professional and managerial employees at U of G,” said Kelly Bertrand, PSA chair, and Martha Harley, associate vice-president (human resources) in a joint statement.

“Throughout bargaining, discussions were open, constructive and respectful. We want to recognize the hard work and dedication of both bargaining teams in reaching this tentative agreement.”

Compact details will remain confidential pending ratification by PSA membership and U of G’s Board of Governors. Details of the time, date and location of the ratification vote will be released soon.
