General Membership Survey

The link to the general membership survey has been sent to member’s non-work emails. If you did not receive the email then please let the Local know by emailing

The demand-setting process that will shape the upcoming round of Collective Agreement bargaining has begun.  This summer, your elected bargaining team will be negotiating the next Collective Agreement, based on demands presented by the Local.

To inform the process of Local Demand-Setting, you are asked to complete the survey by Friday, January 22nd

This survey is your first chance to communicate your bargaining priorities directly to your Local and the Bargaining Team.  It includes many opportunities to provide detailed feedback.

The survey covers issues relevant to professors, instructors, librarians, and counsellors — including both full-time and partial-load.

Part-time and sessional faculty are also invited to complete it, since they could easily be hired on (unionized) partial-load contracts by the time that bargaining is underway.

Please do not distribute this link to others.  If you know of any of your faculty colleagues who have not received this link, please invite them to provide their contact information to the Local, in order to receive a link.

College Faculty Bargaining

The first College Faculty Bulletin for this round of bargaining can be found here. It contains an insightful reflection about our last round of bargaining and what challenges we’ll face negotiating during a pandemic.  It also includes short bios on our bargaining team members and a timeline of the upcoming milestones in our bargaining cycle.

A survey will be sent to all members in early January to help identify common issues throughout the province.  Please complete this survey when you receive it since the results are compiled and sent to the bargaining team.  We will send out reminders when the survey is available.

Our Local will be having a General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, February 17 from 6:30 to 8:30.  Please plan to attend this meeting since it will include our local demand-setting where faculty will have the chance to suggest and vote on specific changes to the collective agreement.  This is your opportunity to make proposals for how to improve working conditions in the colleges.  We will also be reviewing and voting on our Local’s 2021 budget.
