FPSE employees and local elected officials successfully defend the integrity of collective agreements. Local stewards handle most complaints in the initial phase. Where complaints cannot be resolved at the outset, FPSE staff representatives work with Aboriginal people until arbitration if necessary. The FPSE regularly provides training on aboriginal labour relations, and the Contract Management Review Committee (CARC) regularly brings together chief stewards to coordinate and learn how to best protect the rights of collective agreements. A collective agreement is a negotiated contract between the employer and the union that sets the wages and working conditions for all workers covered by the agreement. The agreement provides for an appeal procedure in case the employer does not comply with the terms of the agreement. The collective agreement between UBC and uBC Faculty Association is the legal document to protect your rights and regulate your work as employees of UBC. Its terms are negotiated between the university administration and the faculty association and are in effect until a new agreement is ratified. It regulates a lot of the conditions of your work at UBC. In January 2020, the UBC and Faculty Association negotiating teams agreed on a new contract for the period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022. A membership information sheet was published (available on our negotiating blog) and the collective agreement was ratified by both parties in February 2020.
A compendium of the agreement has also been published. . The collective agreement consists of several sections. Several Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) and Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) are also part of the collective agreement. bennerj2020-11-18T09:58:16-08:00November 18th, 2020| Comments Off on Unite!
