University of Regina - Academic

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

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.
