BUFA’s Bargaining Backgrounders will highlight some of the key issues the Association has prioritized as part of the collective bargaining process. These articles will feature faculty members, professional librarians, Brock students, and allies. We hope these articles will generate discussion, keep members engaged, and serve to educate the wider community about the role of the Association in defending and promoting Brock’s core academic mission.
April 1, 2017 your BUFA Negotiating Team will officially serve notice to the University Administration to begin the process of renegotiating our Collective Agreement. The Collective Agreement outlines terms and conditions of work for all full-time faculty and professional librarians at Brock. We are very excited about our bargaining mandate and look forward to negotiating a settlement that will help lead Brock forward on a number of important fronts. We plan on keeping members informed regularly as the bargaining process unfolds and look forward to that communication being two-way. All Bargaining Bulletins are in the Members section!
On the new BUFA website, we will share some of our knowledge, perceptions and critical analyses of the challenges facing Brock and the University’s responses. We will publish updates on our current contract negotiations. In addition, we will provide our own suggestions for addressing the University’s current difficulties, while maintaining the high academic quality of the education that we provide our students.
