The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with an update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC. An overview of collective bargaining (including information on the bargaining units) is available at http://www.hr.ubc.ca/collective-bargaining/.
The arbitrator’s award that decides the July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2014 collective agreement between the University and the Faculty Association arrived yesterday – well ahead of when it was expected. It is 65 pages, and has taken a bit of time to work through. The following link will direct you to a joint message from the Provosts and the Faculty Association that provides information about the decision: http://www.hr.ubc.ca/faculty-relations/files/Joint-Message_Faculty-Arbitration-Award-_July-24-2013.docx
