Collective Agreement bargaining

The current collective agreement between YUFA and the York University Board of Governors (the body representing the Employer) expires on April 30, 2024.

The YUFA bargaining team for negotiations with the Employer is currently being finalized. The team will include YUFA members from both the professorial and teaching streams, as well as members of the YUFA Executive Committee.

In past rounds of bargaining, the new collective agreement was not ratified before the expiry date of the current agreement. In such cases, the terms and conditions of employment in the expired collective agreement continue to apply until the new collective agreement is in place.

For the upcoming round of bargaining, YUFA will no longer be constrained by provincial legislation (Bill 124) that limited compensation increases to one percent each year during the current collective agreement.

YUFA will regularly update members in regard to negotiations.
