Dalhousie and DFA reach tentative agreement

Posted by admin on January 8, 2021 in Dalhousie Faculty Association (DFA)

Dalhousie University and the Dalhousie Faculty Association (DFA) have successfully reached a tentative collective agreement.

The bargaining teams met with the government conciliator today (Friday, January 8) and successfully resolved the remaining outstanding items.

The parties would like to extend thanks to all bargaining team members who volunteered their time to be involved in this important process.

A tentative agreement means that both parties have agreed to the terms of a collective agreement, which need to be agreed to or ratified by the DFA members and the university’s Board. The details of the tentative deal will be made available once the Board and the membership of DFA have ratified the collective agreement.

DFA represents approximately 1,000 full-time faculty, instructors, librarians and counselors at Dalhousie.
