The summer months are usually a quiet time for faculty collective bargaining in Ontario. Nevertheless, bargaining continues at many campuses as professors and academic librarians work to secure fair deals.
Faculty at Huron University College ratified their new agreement in May. The contract runs from 2015 until 2018, and features salary increases of 2.25 per cent per year over the life of the agreement. The full agreement is available online.
Across the province, the following associations are in bargaining: full- and part-time faculty at Algoma; faculty at the Royal Military College of Canada; full-time faculty at Nipissing; faculty at Ryerson; Librarians and archivists at Western; and faculty at York University.
The Queen’s University Faculty Association will also be in conciliation throughout July.
