Bargaining Units

URFA is made up of sev­en sep­a­rate bar­gain­ing units, each with its own col­lec­tive agree­ment. Your col­lec­tive agree­ment is the writ­ten con­tract that out­lines many of the terms and con­di­tions of your employ­er as a mem­ber of the bar­gain­ing unit. The terms and con­di­tions of the agree­ment are reached through col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing between URFA and the university/​college.

Your col­lec­tive agree­ment is nego­ti­at­ed every few years by a com­mit­tee of URFA mem­bers from your bar­gain­ing unit who nego­ti­ate on behalf of all mem­bers in the unit. 

Copies of your col­lec­tive agree­ment can be found online on your bar­gain­ing unit page list­ed below. Copies of your col­lec­tive agree­ment are also avail­able at the URFA office.
