Academic Agreement Resources

We have created a series of resources for supervisors and managers to help with the application of the collective agreements.

Collective Agreement between the University of Alberta and the Association of the Academic Staff of the University of Alberta

July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020

We continually strive to improve the usefulness of these resources. If you have suggestions for improvements or have suggestions for new topics, contact the Staff Service Centre.

Collective Agreements: Academic

Academic Collective Agreement Information Presentation

Faculty and Staff Relations held two information sessions about the updates to the AASUA 2018-2020 Collective Agreement. Staff members who administer and interpret the Agreement may find these slides  helpful in communicating the changes, conducting their work and updating internal information and policies. Let Faculty and Staff Relations know if you have any questions or you're interested in a future information session at We can tailor the presentation to specific staff groups as well.
