Full Time Members

As a full time professor, you are a member of the academic bargaining unit and are covered by the Academic Employees Collective Agreement. This Agreement extends to all partial-load and full-time faculty throughout all 24 Ontario colleges. The current 4-year collective agreement will expire on September 30, 2021.

As a member of this bargaining unit, you receive the salary, benefits and professional conditions that have been negotiated by the Ontario Public Service Employees’ Union (OPSEU), on your behalf. As such, union dues are automatically deducted from your pay. Even so, you are not a member of your Local until you have signed your membership card.

Membership into your local is free and comes with many advantages, including allowing you to have a voice during negotiations, and in the event of a strike, eligibility for strike benefits such as strike pay. Get in touch with your local if you would like to sign a membership card.

We encourage you to get in touch with your local if you have any questions, and to see how you can stay connected and get more involved.
