Brandon University Reaches New Faculty Deal

Brandon University is able to reach a new four-year deal with faculty association. Brandon University has secured four more years of labour stability through the ratification of a comprehensive new collective agreement with the Brandon University Faculty Association.

The agreement, which was approved by the BU Board of Governors by the end of September and it covers the time period between April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2023.

“I am very pleased with the new collective agreement, which is good for faculty, good for the University, and good for our students as well,” said BU President Dr. David Docherty. “I look forward to the next four years, and I am especially happy with our increased ability to support and engage our faculty in research.”

The agreement abides by Manitoba’s Public Services Sustainability Act, and provides for general annual salary increases of 0%, 0%, 0.75%, and 1% (Information and quotes are taken directly from the Brandon University website)

Hopefully this deal will benefit not only professors but also the students hoping to learn more from research as well.
