University of Regina - Academic & APT

The University of Regina Faculty Association (URFA) is the certified bargaining agent for the University of Regina full and part-time Academic employees and full and part-time Admininstrative, Professional, and Technical (APT) employees.

 Academic


Contracts

The University of Regina Faculty Association became a certified Trade Union in May, 1977 when the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board named it as the bargaining agent for the Academic Staff at the University of Regina. Approximately 450 members were represented at that time. The University of Regina Faculty Association Academic Collective Agreement applies to academic staff members or members who are faculty, librarians, laboratory instructors, instructors, and sessionals. Currently, we represent approximately 1020 members of this bargaining unit.

APT


Contracts

February of 1978, the University of Regina administrative employees were certified under the title Administrative Personnel Group (APG). The APG represented an estimated 50 employees. Until October 10, 1986, the APG was unaffiliated with a larger labour body but at that date, through an application to the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board, the University of Regina Faculty Association became the exclusive bargaining agent for the Administrative Personnel Group. Under this order APG retained their status as a separate bargaining unit but was thus represented by the larger organization and became known as the Administrative, Professional and Technical Employees (APT). Currently, we represent approximately 325 members of this bargaining unit.
