Collective bargaining

CUPE 2278 uses collective bargaining as a method to negotiate a labour contract for members with UBC.  Without our collective agreement, gained through collective bargaining, each employee would have to negotiate an individual contract with UBC; by bargaining together, we gain more influence over our wages, hours, and various aspects of working conditions.

A collective agreement is a fixed-term agreement, and we begin negotiations for a new collective agreement after the previous one expires.  We are currently in a bargaining year, the previous collective agreement having expired on August 31st, 2014.
