University and BUFA ratify collective agreement

Published on August 29 2014

Brock University and the Brock University Faculty Association (BUFA) have ratified a three-year agreement for the period between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2017. BUFA represents 576 professors and professional librarians at Brock. 

Bargaining discussions commenced in May 2014 and pre-conciliation mediation began on Aug. 6. BUFA and the University acknowledge the critical role of mediator Peter Simpson, from the Ministry of Labour, in bringing the parties together and building a bridge to the tentative agreement. 

The tentative agreement was reached on Aug. 13. It was ratified by the Brock University Board of Trustees on Aug. 25 and by the BUFA membership on Aug. 29.
