University Of Calgary Collective Agreement For Faculty

We are working hard to implement the increase as quickly as possible. Given the complexity of retroactive salary processing, this will take some time and we want to ensure accuracy. We assume that all legitimate scientific collaborators will receive their retro-remuneration during the first payment period in October 2020. The updated A and B calendars of the collective agreement are published on our website here. If you have any questions about this, please contact your hr Academic Advisor or hracadem@ucalgary.ca. The first point was related to the “provincial mandate.” In overturning the arbitration award, arbitrator Andy Simms explicitly rejected the University of Calgary administration`s position that a “provincial mandate” can be used to repeal the provisions of a collective agreement or that it should play a role in arbitration decisions. In his analysis of the government`s argument, he writes: The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC is the provincial voice for faculties and employees at BC universities, colleges and institutes as well as private sector institutions. Fpse-Memberloka, represented by the President`s Council and the Executive, represents more than 10,000 faculties and collaborators and was formerly the Association of Educators` College Institute of BC. The university was asked whether legislation that delayed arbitration and inserted PBCO and ministerial guidelines into public sector negotiations allowed an arbitrator, as part of this wage opening, to ignore the parameters set by the parties. It has not been able to draw attention to such an authority.

I have reviewed this legislation and I also cannot find a legal basis to change the contractual mandate that the parties have given me in their agreement. The university salary component of the university`s budget is such that it can easily be seen as a target for cuts. However, academic salaries, whether under an arbitral tribunal or a non-tariff regime, always involve market factors and comparisons that at least partially fuel expectations. . . .
