If you are a full-time or part-time fanshawe faculty member, you are subject to the Academic Employees Collective Agreement (CA). This is a legally binding contract: it defines the rights and obligations you have as a member of the bargaining unit, as well as the rights and obligations of your employer. The treaty is implemented through legally binding dispute resolution procedures, including claims arbitrations (Article 32) and working resolution (WRA). Between these two groups of collaborators are the partial load instructors. Partial-load teachers are in the bargaining unit full-time. By definition, they teach „six (6) to 12 hours per week inclusive.“ Higher education institutions should also recognise that persons who have only a contract for curriculum development or a contract for the performance of coordination functions are duly taken into account in the part-time bargaining unit of auxiliaries, as they do not teach. Only people with apprenticeship schedules and counsellors are included in full-time or part-time group units. OPSEU represents workers in too many bargaining units to provide copies of collective agreements to individual employers on the website. If you can`t find your collective agreement on this page, you can search for it in our private member sector, the members portal.

In its decision, the OLRB considered extensive case law that considered when teachers should be treated and the types of activities to be considered teaching functions. The OLRB has recognized that a person can only be hired to work in a laboratory or to perform coordination functions, or to conduct a curriculum review without any teaching activity. It concluded that none of these tasks, independently, would allow the OLRB to treat the person as a „teacher“ and include him or her in the part-time bargaining academic unit. It was therefore difficult to find hours that performed these functions if they were to be treated as „class hours“. OPSEU regularly receives requests for copies of their central contract from members covered by provincial collective agreements. The following six links provide easy access and allow you to download a copy of your collective agreement in Adobe format. Here you will find a pdf version of your current collective agreement: Academic Collective Agreement 2017-2021. The problem has become complicated by the need for many colleges to regularly enter into additional contracts with part-time, part-load or sessional teachers to perform functions other than classroom teaching, such as curriculum development, academic coordination, in-class technical assistance or administrative activities. The union argued that the hours worked that perform these additional academic activities should be included in determining the number of hours worked by a contract teacher. For example, a part-time teacher who teaches six hours with additional coordination functions, or curriculum development work would move from part-time to underload status and be excluded from the bargaining unit, or a part-load teacher who would teach 12 hours with additional coordination functions, or school development work would be upgraded to meeting status and added to the bargaining unit.
As you know, the university system has three types of contract teachers: part-time teachers, part-time teachers and meetings. Each is under contract for a fixed period. The number of hours they „teach“ distinguishes the three categories. Part-time teachers are defined in the College Collective Bargaining Act, 2008 (CCBA) as teachers who „teach“ up to six hours per week. . . .
