Bargaining update


The AU and AUFA bargaining teams met with the mediator again yesterday to continue bargaining. We are pleased that the two teams were able to build on the work with our mediator over the past month to reach a tentative agreement.

AUFA members will conduct a vote to ratify the agreement on Tuesday, April 12, 2022.

If both parties ratify the agreement, the terms of the tentative agreement will form the next collective agreement.

We believe that the parties have achieved a tentative agreement that supports our team members and the university to move forward and adapt to meet the needs of our learners.

We will continue to keep you updated.
