The Nipissing University Faculty Association Full-Time Academic Staff Bargaining Unit (NUFA, FASBU) has ratified a one-year rollover of their collective agreement, with a few improvements.
In addition to the existing course releases provided to the association, a three-credit course release, or equivalent, for the position of “Indigenous Faculty Representative to the Association Executive” will be provided during each academic year.
Salary scales will increase by one per cent. The Professional Expense Reimbursement (PER) amount will increase for members who are tenure-track, tenured, full-time instructors, permanent academic librarians and archivists, or on limited-term appointments of at least 12 months.
A Memorandum of Agreement has also established a Retirement Incentive Program that will commence on July 1, 2022 and be available to full-time active tenured faculty members who are 60 years or older and have a minimum of 20 years of service at Nipissing University as of December 31, 2022.
