Tentative Agreement Reached

The University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) is pleased to announce that a tentative faculty collective agreement has been reached with the university administration. 

“I’m so proud of our negotiating team for all their hard work and really thankful to the membership for their support of the team,” said UWOFA president Dan Belliveau.

The deal was reached early Friday morning, Nov. 9, after 25 bargaining sessions. 

Further details will be made available in the coming days. A date for the ratification vote has yet to be determined.

UWOFA was pushing for more job security for contract faculty and compensation for all faculty members.

The 1,600 unionized full- and part-time faculty members at Western have been without a contract since June 30, 2018.
