Concordia’s Board of Governors approved the 2023-26 Concordia University Faculty Association (CUFA) Collective Agreement at its December 14 meeting.

CUFA and the university’s negotiation parties reached an agreement in principle on November 22. CUFA’s members voted to ratify the agreement this week, before the Board gave its consent.

Nadia Hardy, deputy provost and vice-provost of enrolment and student experience, led the Concordia negotiating team, and Linda Dyer, professor in the John Molson School of Business’s Department of Management, headed the CUFA team.

“Our teams worked diligently to reach an agreement that I believe benefits all involved,” Hardy says. “I thank Linda and the members of both teams for helping to arrive at this positive result.”

“Through a year of dedication, collaboration and unwavering commitment, we've achieved a historic milestone in our negotiations. This agreement marks a significant step forward, and it also underscores our ongoing commitment to further enhancements in the future,” says Ciprian Alecsandru, CUFA president and associate professor of building, civil and environmental engineering.

“I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to both negotiating teams for their tireless efforts, and I am deeply grateful to our full-time faculty colleagues for their unwavering support throughout this journey."

“It was a long but fruitful year, and has the potential to lead us to a happier workplace,” adds Dyer.

The agreement will come into effect once all parties sign the new deal and will expire on May 31, 2026. The previous CUFA agreement expired on May 31, 2023.
