Prospective Members

Welcome to the University of Manitoba Faculty Association!

The University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) is the certified bargaining agent for approximately 1,200 full-time academics, including librarians, at the University of Manitoba. We and the administration at the University of Manitoba negotiate the provisions of the Collective Agreement, which can be found on this website. As a future Member of UMFA, you will find in it information on terms and conditions of your employment, including your rights and responsibilities.

Also available on our website is a New Hires Manual which may also answer many questions you have regarding your new position.

If you are looking for temporary housing, the University of Manitoba has information on their website:

We invite you to contact us by phone (204-474-8272) or by email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) regarding any questions you may have about the Collective Agreement or the letter of offer that you have received. We would also be pleased to provide you with information about the services we offer to our Members.

We look forward to meeting you in person in the near future.

Greg Flemming
Executive Director
