The bargaining teams for the University of Alberta Board of Governors and the University of Alberta Non-Academic Staff Association (NASA) are pleased to provide the following joint statement.
After enlisting the assistance of a mediator earlier this month, the bargaining teams have a mediator's report recommending terms of settlement. The report includes reference to numerous items that had been previously agreed to during this bargaining round. The full proposed terms of settlement as captured by the mediator’s report will now be subject to ratification by both groups. Notification of ratification must be communicated to the mediator no later than March 31, 2022. Both bargaining teams are recommending the terms of the report for ratification by their respective principals.
If ratified, the terms of the report and agreed-upon items are binding and would be included in a renewal collective agreement. Details will be shared after ratification.
