University Of Western Ontario Faculty Association Collective Agreement

The University of Western Ontario Faculty Association represents full-time university professors (excluding clinical medicine) and part-time faculties with tasks that teach at least 0.5 degrees of credit courses in each of the last 3 fiscal years. Probation officers, librarians and archivists may, upon request, receive a one-year extension of their probation period. Members must submit a written renewal request to their dean or chief librarian by December 31, 2020, which is approved. UWOFA negotiated this agreement with the employer in the spring to address the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. UWOFA negotiates collective agreements, advises members on employment issues, deals with labour disputes and complaints, and promotes the professional interests of faculty members, university librarians and archivists. Western has a diverse workforce. Below is a list of Western employee groups. Some are trade unions, others are associations. Select a group to see more details and find links to more information.
