Trufa Collective Agreement 2020

It took nine months of negotiations, including 30 days of Labour Council mediation, to negotiate an agreement in which most of the articles were either literally or essentially those of the 2012222014 faculty agreement. If the administration had not vigorously denied the articles of the «old» agreement for the first six months of negotiations, we would probably not be on strike today. Jacqueline: On behalf of the University of Manitoba Faculty Association, I wish you and your colleagues all the best in your fight for a strong first collective agreement. Our colleague Tom Booth, President of the CAUT Defence Fund, will present the UNBC Faculty Association with a cheque for $2,000 as a tangible sign of our solidarity if he joins you on Friday on the strike line. Indeed, the «false CDI» promises the government to further distort the UNBC wage scale, which, in its own words, is not only in tune with the comparators, but is broken inside, so that wages do not even reflect the current agreement, let alone a sustainable employment rate for the work done by the UNBC faculty. Certainly, as part of the increase in employer benefits, many of our members would feel even worse than they would have been if the old goat system had been maintained as it is. When the management team presented scenarios in the courtroom, they admitted that this was the case. Surprisingly, the management team around the table acknowledged that they had not really tried to model the impact of their performance system. If they had, they would have understood how wrong their proposal was.

Even after dealing with the shortcomings of the proposal, the management team insisted that they would not change it. On behalf of the members of the Professional Employees Association, I would like to express our solidarity with your fight for the negotiation of a fair collective agreement for members of the UNBC Faculty Association. Shortly after the move to distance course delivery during the winter semester, we worked with the Faculty Association of the University of Calgary to negotiate an agreement that provides for an automatic one-year extension of the term of office and the doctoral application process for the Holding Track academic staff (university staff are not required to take the deferral if they are in the normal course). On behalf of the 41,000 members of the BC Teachers` Federation, I am writing today to express our solidarity as you negotiate your first union collective agreement. The BCTF, like you, believes that all educators must be able to exercise their right to free and complete collective bargaining. We also strongly support your goal of achieving pay parity with other faculties in British Columbia and across Canada. Thank you for everything you do in this difficult time. I recognize that it has not been easy — that many of you are dependent on young and old, and that the boundaries between work and life are considerably blurred.

I am also aware of the toll this has taken on collective and individual mental health. We appreciate everything you do – and look forward to having a good woman in the near future. Again, I would like to thank you for everything you do in these difficult times. It was remarkable to see what was achieved as a collective, despite all the problems we are all going through. I`m amazed – and tired! – every day. I couldn`t imagine doing it with a better group of people – thank you! The faculty federation has been negotiating since May 2014, after the failure of the failed negotiations (an arbitrator had to be appealed).
