Ratification of the 2012 Collective Agreement

AAPS is pleased to confirm that the 2012 Collective Agreement has been ratified by the AAPS membership and the University.

We had an exemplary voter turnout with nearly 40% of members registering a vote.

As outlined in a recent email the results of the membership vote were:
1,316   In Favour
     35   Opposed
1,351   Total Votes

The UBC Board of Governors ratified the agreement on January 18, 2013.

According to UBC Human Resources, the general wage increase will likely be implemented on January 31, 2013 and will be retroactive to July 1, 2012.

Please note the University will be notifying those departments and faculties affected by market survey adjustments.

The bargaining committee and the board would like to thank the members for all the messages of support throughout the negotiation process.
