Status of bargaining with PSAC/PDF's

September 15, 2020

The University of New Brunswick’s Board of Governors and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 60550 have voted in favour of ratifying their first collective agreement representing post-doctoral fellows.  This includes close to 50 post-doctoral fellows on both campuses. This is the third bargaining unit collective agreement with PSAC.  

“Our post-doctoral fellows are critical to the success of UNB,” said Ryan Johnston, chief negotiator for UNB.  “The work, and research, they are doing will lead the future of UNB, the province and the country.”

PSAC and UNB also have collective agreements together for the Union of Graduate Student Workers (UGSW) and the Professional and Technical Staff Union (PTSU).

Both parties are pleased to have reached a first collective agreement and look forward to continuing to work together.
