Know Your Collective Agreement

Know Your Collective Agreement

The Collective Agreement is a legal contract that is negotiated between the Governors of the University of Alberta (the employer) and the Association of Academic Staff (AASUA). The AASUA has the exclusive authority to negotiate the terms and conditions of your employment.

The Collective Agreement sets out the rights and responsibilities of the employer, the employee, and the Association. It applies to all employees covered by the agreement.

It is essential that you know and understand your rights and entitlements on the job and how you are to exercise those rights.

Your “Letter of Appointment” will stat which of the 7 Collective Agreements governs your terms and conditions of employment. Please go to the following links to access your Collective Agreement.

Series One: February 7, 2017 – Evaluations
“Evaluations” is the first topic in this series to increase your knowledge and understanding of your collective agreement and to understand your rights and how to exercise them. How you are evaluated affects your compensation. It intersects with other issues that we will take up in further entries in this series.

Please contact us at if you wish to speak to a Labour Relations Officer about how any aspect of your Collective Agreement is being applied to you.
