With the June 30th expiry of the Collective Agreement (CA) for Full-Time Faculty and Librarians and negotiations expected to begin in the spring, your negotiating team is already hard at work. The first members’ survey was sent out at the beginning of March (thank you to those who completed it), Faculty-based meetings are in the final planning stages and work on developing proposals to take to the table is underway.
While earlier employee group negotiations were particularly challenging and the team is ready for that, WLUFA is hopeful that this round of contract talks for Full-Time Faculty and Librarians will be constructive and mutually beneficial.
