University Of New Brunswick Faculty Collective Agreement

Leave (collective agreement number: section 39.1.3): valid until 31 March; CB positions are planning until April 15. Association of the University of New Brunswick Teachers AUNBT, certified in 1979, is one of the first faculty federations in Canada to be a union certified under provincial labour laws. It is the bargaining agent for a unit of “persons who are employed full-time or who are employed as librarians at the University of New Brunswick at their sites in Fredericton and Saint John. with the exception of deans, associate or assistant deans, deans, deans, above the rank of deans, the university librarian, faculty members who are members of the Board of Governors and those excluded by the Labour Relations Act. There are about 600 members – teachers, teachers and librarians – in the AUNBT bargaining unit. Retirement (collective agreement reference: section 26.1.1): Please note that as of January 1, 2008, this conventional language will not comply with British Columbia`s current human rights legislation, which effectively ends mandatory retirement. If the normal retirement date is unchanged on June 30, there is no longer an obligation under our collective agreement for a worker to retire at age 65. Find the important dates and deadlines included in the collective agreement. If you have any doubts about these dates or if you have any other questions, contact the collective agreement and/or your trusted agent. Professional indemnity (reference of the collective agreement: article 37.7): Apply before May 31 for the claim of expenses incurred during the previous year. Termination (collective agreement reference: section 26.3.1): An employee or full-time employee may resign from any appointment by not preceding in writing to the President of the CB a period of at least two months. The resignation shall take effect on 30 June following the declaration of resignation or at the end of his term of office, unless an earlier date is acceptable to both parties. The FNBFA is very concerned about the imposition by the State government of “mediation” in university collective bargaining in recent years. We are opposed to the routine use of boards of directors because of their negative effects on the negotiation process and because this use implies that universities are simply part of the public sector and therefore not independent and autonomous entities.

Probation period (reference of the collective agreement: Article 15.3): The CB shall inform the workers in writing, at least two months before the end of their probation period, whether the probation period has been successfully completed. . . .
