The collective agreement between UMFA and the university expired in March 2016. Ongoing negotiations for a new collective agreement have yielded no significant results. Collective bargaining initially focused on fair wages, as the University of Manitoba (UofM) has one of the lowest salaries among tenure-track professors at U15 universities in Canada on strike at the University of Manitoba. As of November 1, all faculty members, librarians and full-time faculty at the University of Manitoba Faculty Union (UMFA) will be on strike for a fair and reasonable collective agreement. Classes have been cancelled; All consulting and management tasks are frozen. Even access to the university`s learning management system is considered a crossing of the picket line. Wage negotiations were put on the back line a few days ago, when the new provincial Conservative government took a strong stance, recommended that UMFA members return to their workplaces, and asked for a one-year extension of existing contracts by 0% in order to stabilize the level of public sector pay. This was seen as a direct attack on the university`s autonomy and the constitutionally protected collective bargaining process. The recruitment criteria for teaching assistant positions are academic qualifications, the need to acquire experience, previous experience and satisfactory employment in advance, in accordance with the provisions of this collective agreement.
While rules, guidelines and agreements are very important and provide the general framework for their own work, it is really the people who create and shape the strong culture and climate in a university. The university strives to be a just and inclusive community and proactively strives to increase diversity among its parishioners. Our values of justice and diversity are linked to our unwavering commitment to excellence in the pursuit of our academic mission. The university defends the principles of accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (APD). That is why we strive to make our recruitment, assessment and selection processes as accessible as possible and to provide candidates with disabilities with the necessary accommodation. If you need accommodation at any time during the application and recruitment process, please contact email@example.com….
