Salary & Benefits. Pension. University Affairs.
APSA is the legal bargaining group for Administrative and Professional Staff at SFU. APSA negotiates salaries, benefits, pension and employment policies on behalf of members.
APSA negotiates with the university to determine annual general salary increases to ensure salaries are competitive to attract quality staff and retain them. The 2014 Salary and Benefits Award was ratified by members and is in effect from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2019. Learn more about the Colin Taylor award from the 2014 round of bargaining.
The Employee Joint Pension Committee, made up of APSA, CUPE and Poly Party, negotiate changes to the Pension Plan for Administrative/Union Staff. The Board of Trustees, which has three university representatives and three employee group representatives (APSA, CUPE, Poly Party), manages the pension plan text. They meet once a month to monitor investments, approve investment mixes and manage fund managers.
The AD 10 policies set out the responsibilities, rights, and terms and conditions of employment for APSA staff. APSA negotiates the policies with HR. To get your APSA policy red booklet, contact the APSA office.
