Tufa Collective Agreement

Thank you for everything you do in this difficult time. I recognize that it has not been easy — that many of you are dependent on young and old, and that the boundaries between work and life are considerably blurred. I am also aware of the toll this has taken on collective and individual mental health. We appreciate everything you do – and look forward to having a good woman in the near future. Tufa and the university administration have accepted other letters (LoU), Memoranden (MoA, MoU) or Settlement Protocols (MoS) that contain common interpretations of certain sections of the collective agreement or that reflect agreements on related issues that are not explicitly considered by the parties in the negotiations. Such documents are our overall agreement with the employer. Individual transaction agreements are not published on the site. 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). The Trent University Faculty Association (TUFA) and Trent University jointly announced that the Council`s Executive Committee this morning ratified a new collective agreement with TUFA on behalf of the University`s Board of Governors.

The agreement has already been ratified by TUFA on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, when a majority of the faculty voted in favour of the agreement. 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 Existing faculty guidelines refer to previous collective agreements and APT and GPC manuals that are no longer in force.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. Again, I would like to thank you for everything you do in these difficult times. It was remarkable to see what was achieved as a collective, despite all the problems we are all going through. I`m amazed – and tired! – every day. I couldn`t imagine doing it with a better group of people – thank you! As with the 2020 winter semester, students` reactions to general assessments of students in spring-summer and fall education are gathered; However, we only pass this feedback on to course directors. Feedback is not given to department heads, associate deans or deans unless you, as a course leader, give prior authorization.
