UBC is organized into several groups of employees and faculty groups, with specific employment conditions for each group. The faculty association also represents the interests of the faculty at UBC beyond the issues of the collective agreement. Section 16 of our collective agreement states that „nothing in the collective agreement should be construed as limiting the role of the faculties` association in representing the interests of its members at the university. The university recognizes that this role has traditionally gone beyond the issues to which the collective agreement refers and continues to develop. The Faculty Association of the University of British Columbia was established in 1920 to facilitate members` social and employment relations with the university. The Faculty Association is now a registered, not-for-profit corporation established under the Societies Act in British Columbia. Since 2000, we have also been a voluntary union and the sole bargaining partner for our more than 3,200 members under the protection and rules of the B.C. Labor Relations Code. We therefore have a responsibility to represent all of our members in matters arising from the collective agreement and the collective relationship with the university, including the issues that constitute most of the conditions of the working relationship between a member and the university in general.
As an exclusive bargaining partner for our members, we have the corresponding legal obligation under the Labour Code to fairly represent our members in all employment matters. Whatever your request, the faculty association will do its best to help you. The terms and conditions of faculty members, librarians and directors of extended learning programs are governed by UBC guidelines and, where appropriate, by the collective agreement between UBC and the Faculty Association.
