ARTICLE 26 - Subcontracting

The Union waives the right to bargain over the decision to subcontract bargaining unit work. In the event the University elects to subcontract and its decision results in the displacement of bargaining unit members, the University agrees to attempt to give the Union ninety (90) days advance notice and shall give the Union sixty (60) days advance notice and to meet with the Union upon request, at a mutually agreed time, to discuss the effect of subcontracting, if any. Employees affected by subcontracting in a manner which meets the definition of a layoff shall be provided the protections of Article 25, Layoff and Recall.
