Current Agreement

The current collective agreement between the PDFA and the University of Alberta is effective from August 1, 2022, to December 31, 2024. The agreement applies only to those postdocs who are paid directly from their supervisor's grant or whose fellowship money is administered by the University of Alberta.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the agreement, as it contains important information about your working conditions, rights and responsibilities as a postdoc at the U of A.
