The Negotiating Team and the Executive Committee are heartened by this outcome.
This is a progressive agreement that lays the foundation for better compensation, better benefits, increased research support, and enhanced collegiality.
- The University’s Board of Governors will hold a ratification vote on the CA on July 18, 2019.
- Many of the changes that we bargained represent significant shifts to current practice. The Association will be engaging with the Administration in some joint training on certain aspects of the new agreement. In addition, we will be holding our own events and workshops, and producing info materials, to help educate the Membership on key changes and timelines under the new CA.

Thank you again for taking the time to inform and inspire the Negotiating Team throughout the bargaining process – and for voting YES to a CA that strengthens the Association’s work in supporting our Members!
