DIE AUFA has successfully negotiated 15 collective agreements since its creation as a trade union in 1976. On this page you can download the current agreement as well as the current memoranda of understanding, forms and other protocols with the administration and the Board of Governors. «I would like to congratulate the members of the negotiating teams representing both parties and thank them for their commitment to Acadia,» said President John Rogers. «At Acadia, we are fortunate to have faculty and staff who understand the uniqueness of our teaching and learning model and the reality of the challenges facing post-secondary institutions today. This four-year agreement clearly puts the interests of our students first and creates an environment that allows us to support our exceptional faculty.
Well done! I ask you to ask your team to agree to an agreement that: 1. Reinstate an appropriate supplement for full-time faculty that protects the academic integrity of the university 2. Continue to support pay equity principles through active pay equity provisions.3 Bring Acadia faculty to regional averages for salaries 4.

It is therefore time for the Board of Trustees to recognize the sacrifices made by the Acadia Faculty to preserve the university`s reputation for quality education and research while restoring its financial integrity. It can do this by negotiating a fair collective agreement that respects the essential academic contributions of its faculty and earns its reputation as a good place to work. The faculty of Acadia has made enough sacrifices. There is still time for the board to avoid a strike and commit to a fair and equitable agreement, but the board team will have to negotiate if that is to happen. The faculty association is committed to a fair agreement that benefits Acadia and its students.
But we cannot negotiate with ourselves. I support the members of the Acadia University Faculty Association and ask you to come back to the table and negotiate a fair collective agreement that avoids a strike. If you would like a hard copy of your collective agreement, please speak to your steward. If you don`t know who your steward is or how to get to your home, contact your local CUPE office. Acadia University`s Board of Governors has voted to ratify a new collective agreement with the Acadia University Faculty Association (AUFA). The board received a notification from DER AUFA last week that the four-year agreement had been ratified by its members after negotiating teams reached a provisional agreement at the end of November last year. Acadia`s faculty made significant sacrifices to help the university recover from a major financial crisis. The faculty contributed to this recovery by agreeing to temporarily suspend the supplement to the permanency component and to assume much higher workloads due to its smaller number and Acadia`s growing dependence on precarious workers. They helped the university break free from an important retirement obligation by agreeing to move from a defined benefit plan to a targeted benefit plan. They helped by settling for wage increases below regional standards. «This new long-term collective agreement prepares us well to achieve our key priorities,» said Dr.
Peter Ricketts, President and Vice-Chancellor of Acadia. «Acadia`s place in Nova Scotia`s post-secondary sector and our importance to our region depends on the high-quality faculty we have here, the teaching and research work they do, and the environment they create that allows our students to succeed. I would like to join John in thanking both negotiating teams for their determination to reach an agreement that will keep Acadia on a sustainable path and create opportunities for our community to work together to strengthen Acadia`s reputation in Nova Scotia and beyond.» «All CUPE members work under the protection of a contract called a collective agreement.
