Ratification Announcement of 2022-2025 Collective Agreement

Dear Members,

On Friday, April 27, the bargaining teams for UBC and the Faculty Association reached an agreement for a new Collective Agreement for the period July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2025. Both the Faculty Association and the University worked hard over the past year to reach this mutually agreeable settlement.

In order for the Agreement to go into effect, it must be ratified by the members of the Faculty Association (and the Board of Governors). The Faculty Association’s negotiating committee along with the Executive believes that this agreement contains many positive outcomes for our members. The Bargaining Team and the Executive Committee have therefore unanimously recommended that the membership ratify this agreement. An Information Package containing the agreed-upon terms for the 2022-2025 Collective Agreement is now available on our website.

Members will be asked to ratify the new Collective Agreement before it takes effect. Information sessions on the new Agreement will be held via Zoom on Thursday, May 11 & Friday, May 12 from 10am – 12 pm

The online ratification vote will open on Monday, May 15 and will be open until 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 29th, 2023. Members will be receiving an email invitation with instructions on how to vote. You will be directed to the voting website and required to enter the password contained in your email invitation as well as your 7-digit UBC Employee ID number. Our electronic voting is conducted through third-party voting software to ensure that your vote is anonymous.

Thank you for your support. We hope to see you at one of the meetings.
