It is important to know that existing faculty guidelines are being revised, although no substantial changes to the criteria are being made at this time. Existing faculty guidelines refer to previous collective agreements and APT and GPC manuals that are no longer in force. Most of these provisions are now in the GFC manual. In addition, existing faculty guidelines refer to procedures and promotion and evaluation committees that have since been amended and codified in the current collective agreement. Yes, yes. The new PDAC is a registered union with a collective agreement unit representing all post-docs working at the University of Calgary, regardless of their employment status. The university was asked whether legislation that delayed conciliation and introduced PBCO and ministerial directives into public sector negotiations provided a power to allow an arbitrator to ignore the parameters established by the parties in the context of this re-opening of wages. It was not in a position to draw attention to such authority. I have reviewed this legislation and I cannot find a legal basis on which I can change the contractual mandate that the parties have given me in their agreement…. 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).

As mentioned above, it has mass-purchased devices, such as webcams and headphones, which can now be purchased with the PER (Professional Expense Reimbursement) program. Please contact l`itsupport@ucalgary.ca for more information. In an effort to justify the deviation of her proposal from the contractual area of the conciliation agreement, she argues [the University of Calgary Administration] that a union, also known as a union or union, is an organization that protects common interests and negotiates objectives in certain professions. The most common objective is to improve or, at the very least, maintain the group`s employment conditions. Through its management, the union negotiates with the employer on behalf of union members and negotiates overcontracting contracts through collective bargaining with employers. These include wage negotiations, work rules, appeal procedures, recruitment, dismissal and promotion rules, benefits (such as leave, extension of health care and retirement), workplace safety and guidelines. Our agreement also provided for early access to reimbursement of 2020/2021 professional expenses and deferral options for academics who were on research and scholarship leave (RSL) or who had planned an RSL from July. We will meet again in the fall with the faculty association to discuss further adjustments that may be necessary to assist university staff if the pandemic continues. The academic component of the university`s budget is such that it can easily be seen as a reduction target.

However, academic salaries, whether in arbitration or a free collective bargaining system, still have market factors and comparisons that, at least in part, fuel expectations.
