University of Regina (APT)

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

Col­lec­tive Agreements

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 440 mem­bers of this bar­gain­ing unit.

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 of Regina.

Please note that the doc­u­ments post­ed online are not legal­ly bind­ing. Errors of com­mis­sion and omis­sion excepted.
