The mandate is the result of a year-long consultation and research process conducted by the Collective Agreement Committee and the Negotiating Team; has been reviewed and recommended by both the FA Council and the Executive Committee; and, was unanimously supported by the Members present at the February 6, 2019, Extraordinary General Meeting .
Many thanks to Members in attendance at the meeting for the dynamic discussion, participation, and strong show of support!
Correction Notice – Member Support for Tuition Waivers
Please note that an incorrect figure regarding Member support for tuition waivers (in the Salary, Benefits and Retirement Survey) was accidentally cited. CORRECTION: 76.43% of survey respondents answered “yes” to the question, “Would you like to see a tuition waiver benefit provided?”. While this confirms a very robust level of support, we apologize for providing inaccurate information at the meeting.
