The extension of the current agreement means that there will be no change in the scale of salaries or benefits received by members over the next two years. The pace increases will continue each year (July 1, 2010 and July 1, 2011).

This meant that there could be no net increase in wages and benefits for 2010-12. The SFUFA has already ratified the extension of its agreement until 2012. Other public sector unions also concluded their negotiations under the same mandate. Both the BC Government Employees Union and the BC Hospital Employees Union have signed two-year contracts that do not involve a general wage increase. At SFU, CUPE and TSSU have not yet reached an agreement, nor have our parallel associations with other institutions.
However, APSA and SFUFA do not have the opportunity to negotiate the language of the contract (AD 10 guidelines) in the negotiations on wages and social benefits, while these other organizations do. APSA works on policy issues that do not affect wage and social costs through a joint committee with the administration, the Joint University Committee (JAC). Each party can raise issues at any time that need to be discussed within the JUAC. The survey of ApSA members on salaries and benefits showed that a majority of members overall are relatively satisfied with our compensation package. While most of them naturally want wage increases and have many concrete wishes for the increase/change of benefits, the executive believes that the government`s mandate currently offered no room for significant improvement.
