Our Rights


The best way to ensure the protection of your rights as a lecturer is to know your contract.

Lecturers calculating their new salary with the raises secured in the 2018-2021 contract can use this worksheet.

Do you have a work concern or want to report a potential contract violation? See below.

If you have a concern about your working conditions and/or believe you are facing a potential contract violation, follow the link above.

This document is our collective bargaining agreement, or contract, with university administration from 2018-2021. The articles listed here took effect in July 2018 upon ratification of our contract.

This document explains in detail the improvements and changes made between the 2013-2018 and 2018-2021 contracts. You can read the full text of the 2013-2018 contract here.

WORK CONCERNS & CONTRACT VIOLATIONS

Our Grievance Officers and members of the Contract Implementation and Organizing Committee (all of whom are lecturers) support and advise union colleagues who are facing potential contract violations, or have questions about whether their working conditions are contract-compliant or not.

Contract-enforceable issues can include salary offers, appointment fluctuation, treatment by supervisors, termination without due process, or any number of other areas. All Lecturers have the right to have union representation at meetings with administration that concern contract issues and/or disciplinary action.

If you suspect you are facing a potential contract violation, OR if you would like to find out if a workplace issue is something your union colleagues can help with, contact us:
