Collective Agreement

The Collective Agreement between UBC and the UBC Faculty Association is the legal document protecting your rights and governing your work as a UBC employee. Its terms are negotiated between the university administration and the Faculty Association, and it is in force until a new agreement is ratified. It governs many of the terms and conditions of your work at UBC.

The Collective Agreement is composed of several component sections. Several Letters of Understanding (LOU) and Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) are also part of the Collective Agreement.

In January 2020, the bargaining teams for UBC and the Faculty Association reached an agreement for a new contract for the period July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022. More information and a link to the Information Package is available in our Bargaining Blog. The Collective Agreement has now been ratified by both parties and a copy will be posted to our respective websites as soon as it is finalized. 

The last Agreement (ratified August 2017) covers the period July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2019. A pdf of this Agreement is available at this link; an HTML version is also available at this link. If you have any questions, please contact us.
