Bargaining Update: Agreement in principle

Dear members,

We are pleased to inform you that we have reached an agreement in principle with the Central Administration at the end of our second day of mediation.

We believe that we have negotiated the best deal possible in the current circumstances and we are happy to recommend its ratification. The agreement will be presented to the APUO Executive next week. A Special General Assembly (SGA) and secret vote to ratify the agreement will be held in the coming weeks. All relevant information will be forwarded to you as soon as possible.

We would like to thank all APUO members for your support and participation in our Respect campaign. We also wish to thank William Kaplan, the independent mediator who worked hard to make this agreement possible.

Thank you again for your extraordinary support.

Sincerely,

The APUO Negotiation Team
