Acadia University Faculty Association Collective Agreement

aufa@acadiau.ca (902) 585-1422 Acadia University Wolfville, NS B4P 2R6 AUFA participates each summer in the new faculty orientation organized by Human Resources. In addition, each August, we hold a new faculty workshop dedicated specifically to the topics covered by the collective agreement. This one-hour workshop addresses key issues such as: According to Acadia Students` Union, 81.6 per cent of faculty association members voted, and 81 per cent of voters voted in favour of the strike. Similarly, the university`s pension offer depended on a specific proposal to reform the pension system, which was adopted and approved by all pension members until the end of February, and not just by faculty members. This too was unacceptable to the Faculty Association, which argued that such a vote by individuals was under no control. „The university is painted as uncompromising and we are not. We`re always trying to negotiate… an affordable and sustainable collective agreement. Equity Training – As part of its long-standing commitment to justice in the workplace, AUFA has secured annual workshops on the procedures of the Department/Library/Higher Education Review Committee (12.01(b)). These workshops are presented jointly by the Board of Directors and the AEA and are required for all those who sit on the DRC/LRC/URC or a selection committee for the duration of the collective agreement.

The university is hopeful that the faculty will decide to use the services of the conciliation office, as well as extend negotiations beyond the weekend if a meeting with a conciliator does not lead to an agreement, he said. #AcadiaU – AUFA have tentatively agreed on a new contract. University courses and operations will take place today as usual. This collection is a great resource for students, graduates or anyone who is currently looking for a job. For more information on the collective attendance of collective agreements: the faculty association commits the university to increase the number of apprenticeship places from about 150 to 182 and to fund a childcare structure for staff, students and the municipality. „But we are very happy to have agreed without interruption of work,“ says Biro. Both sides were brief when conciliation talks failed earlier this month. On that date, a fundamental agreement was reached on salaries and the number of permanent apprenticeships at Wolfville University, two major points of disagreement.

But the Governing Council insisted that the number of full-time jobs be linked to the number of student enrolments, remaining the main obstacle to the union. Details of the interim agreement will be published after a vote by faculty members. A mediation body would bring the two parties together and finally indicate whether an agreement could be reached.
