Dalhousie and Dalhousie Faculty Association (DFA) reach tentative agreement

Posted by admin on January 6, 2023 in Dalhousie Faculty Association (DFA)

Dalhousie University and the Dalhousie Faculty Association (DFA) have reached a tentative collective agreement. The bargaining teams met with the conciliator on Wednesday and Thursday of this week and successfully resolved the remaining items.

The parties would like to extend thanks to all bargaining team members who invested their time and who worked in earnest throughout this important process.

A tentative agreement means that both parties have agreed to the terms of a new collective agreement, which now needs 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 the DFA have ratified the collective agreement.

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