After four years, Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association reaches collective agreement

| Comment

The Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association (CMCFA) has reached an agreement with the Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada. The faculty association had been without an agreement since 2014. During the intervening years, their employer continuously stalled and threatened not to honour a previously agreed to memoranda of understanding. This resulted in an Unfair Labour Practice complaint from the faculty association.

After assurances that the employer would honour the memoranda of understanding for the life of the agreement, the parties were able to come to an agreement. The agreement contains across-the-board salary increases competitive with other faculty associations and an understanding that the faculty association will participate in the Employee Wellness Support Program to negotiate new employee wellness provisions into the collective agreement.
