University Of Calgary Collective Agreement

Yes. The new PDAC is a registered union with a collective agreement unit representing all post-docs working at the University of Calgary, regardless of their employment status. Thank you for everything you do in these difficult times. I realize it wasn`t easy — many of you are nurses for young and old, and the boundaries between work and life are blurring considerably. I also recognize the toll it has taken on collective and individual mental health. We appreciate everything you do – and I hope we look forward to seeing you in the near future. The new PDAC is a union with collective bargaining obligations and other essential services for members. To be operational, pdac needs an executive director to lead the union and deal with cases of maladministration (e.g.B. Sudden job losses or sudden loss of services), b) negotiators and advisors during negotiations, c) spending money to solve legal problems, (d) offices, a computer, a telephone line and the maintenance of this site. In addition, unions usually provide small fees to post-doctrinal executive directors and/or, if necessary, any other staff. They have a small advocacy fund and a budget to provide their members with professional development opportunities. To cover these costs, membership fees are unfortunately required.

After all, we have an individual responsibility to take care of ourselves and a collective responsibility to take care of each other. 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 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.
