The agreement is retroactive to the 2017/18 academic year: this week, the university`s Board of Governors approved a four-year contract between the administration and the 1400 members of the University of Regina Faculty Association. The University of Regina, along with its teachers and librarians, has taken a final step towards a new collective agreement. The University of Regina Faculty Association (URFA) is the certified negotiator for full-time and part-time staff at the University of Regina Administrative, Vocational and Technical (APT). In February 1978, the trustees of the University of Regina were certified under the title of „Administrative Personnel Group“ (APG). The CPA was estimated to have 50 people. Until October 10, 1, 1986, the CPA was not involved in a larger working procedure, but at that time the University of Regina Faculty Association became an exclusive bargaining agent for the Personnel Administrative Group following a request to the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board. Under this order, the CPA retained its status as an autonomous bargaining unit, but was therefore represented by the largest organization and became known as Administrative, Professional and Technical Employees (APTs). We currently represent some 325 members of that bargaining unit. The UR/URFA APT COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT 2017 – 2020 was ratified by the members on 26 February 2018.
Professors, librarians and other members of the association ratified the treaty last week. The scale of teacher secondment rates is set at an average between their existing devaluation table and the number of mailings for assistant professors. A professional development fund of $12,000 per year is also being implemented for teachers. . CUPE 5791 covers administrative staff, company and library staff, facility operation and security staff as well as groups of collaborators for trades, scientific and technical assistance. CUPE 2419 represents students engaged in providing teaching and research support within the university. UofR APT Negotiations Update (26 January 2018) (293 KB). . . .
