Knowing & Using Your Collective Agreement
The Collective Agreement is central to work life on campus at the University of Manitoba. It governs the numerous tasks and workloads carried out by professors, academic librarians, and instructors who make UofM happen on a daily basis.
The Collective Agreement serves as the best possible tool to keep things running as they should and administrators accountable. It is therefore critical that all Members understand the Collective Agreement in full.
Knowing and Using Your Collective Agreement was developed to bring clarity to some of the more confusing aspects of the CA. Each section of Knowing and Using Your Collective Agreement lays out the groundwork and the practical takeaways that are important for Members to understand so they can continue to maintain the principles that we’ve fought for through collective bargaining and strike action.
