FPSE employees and local elected officials successfully defend the integrity of collective agreements. Local stewards handle most complaints in the initial phase. Where complaints cannot be resolved at the outset, FPSE staff representatives work with Aboriginal people until arbitration if necessary. The FPSE regularly provides training on aboriginal labour relations, and the Contract Management Review Committee (CARC) regularly brings together chief stewards to coordinate and learn how to best protect the rights of collective agreements. The collective agreement between UBC and uBC Faculty Association is the legal document to protect your rights and regulate your work as employees of UBC. Its terms are negotiated between the university administration and the faculty association and are in effect until a new agreement is ratified. It regulates a lot of the conditions of your work at UBC. In January 2020, the UBC and Faculty Association negotiating teams agreed on a new contract for the period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022. A membership information sheet was published (available on our negotiating blog) and the collective agreement was ratified by both parties in February 2020. A compendium of the agreement has also been published.
A collective agreement is a negotiated contract between the employer and the union that sets the wages and working conditions for all workers covered by the agreement. The agreement provides for an appeal procedure in case the employer does not comply with the terms of the agreement.

For more information on how Aboriginal people can access FPSE services, please see the Policy and Procedures Manual. It describes the FPSE`s procedures for access to contract management services and the policy of providing legal services to local residents. . bennerj2020-09-08T09:59:06-07:00September 8th, 2020 Comments Off on HRISC Resources for #BLM, Fighting Hate and Racism .
