The collective agreement is specific to the University of Capilano and the CFA. This is the agreement that the CFA negotiates on behalf of all Capilano`s teaching faculties. This is the first place you should look for if you have any questions. But you should also feel free to chat with your territory manager with questions or write to the steward leader and chief assistant. Here is the current version of the collective agreement: speak to Chief Michael Begg if you have any concrete questions about the collective agreement. Following negotiations on the new collective agreement, the union signed a Memorandum of Understanding with capilano University on 23 May 2015. The ELP Joint Committee was unable to agree on changes to the collective agreement. There have been a number of proposals from both parties, including changes to the composition of the review committee. For members, the most important proposal discussed by the Committee was to divide paid training leave into two categories: some based on “salary plus seniority” and others based solely on merit. It is the latter category that would be new. As part of the collective agreement, the ELP committee reviews all applications based on merit and seniority benefits (although all applications are subject to an initial merit review prior to the final salary and seniority review). This committee continues to address issues such as the placement of ladders and job descriptions.

It has not yet agreed on changes to the collective agreement. The rights and obligations of the faculty as a collaborator of the University of Capilano are mainly found in our collective agreement and related agreements (see link below). Some of our rights are set out in a document called the Joint Agreement (also below). Our agreement also covers certain provisions of the previous joint agreement of 2010-12. (Contact the chief steward for more details.) In the spring of 2016, the Joint Committee on Regulation agreed on a question of interpretation of the existing rules of the agreement. The question dealt with two rules: one to trigger the regularization of non-regulators and the other for the “increase” of normal part-time faculty to a greater number of regular sections. The agreement removed a barrier to the restriction of the basic section that prevented regularization or reloading if the total number of regular sections of the department was thus greater than the “base number”.
