Arbitrations and Grievances

APSA has filed a grievance based on article 9.2 of our Basic Agreement. This grievance is to dispute the University's inconsistent distribution of the professional development fund reimbursement payout for temporary members from our last round of bargaining. We hope to resolve this matter as soon as possible.

APSA received mediated recommendations from a grievance for 8.1 of our Basic Agreement. There was a dispute on what APSA could bargain during the last round of salary and benefits negotiations. This will inform our Salary and Benefits Committee of proposals we can present during negotiations.

APSA advocates have several ongoing grievances and investigations on accommodations, return to work and hours of work. We can't give any details due to confidentiality issues. Please see this infographic on the Life of a Grievance to learn more about how the grievance process works.
