Advocacy

Representing Members on Issues

We are here to support you through workplace challenges.

UBC is one of the largest and most complex employers in the province. As the size and complexity of an organization increases, so do the possibilities for tension. Advocacy is the core service AAPS provides to its members. Member Services Officers answer a significant number of queries and provides information or professional counsel on the employment relationship with the University. When there is a differing interpretation or violation of the Collective Agreement and the issue cannot be resolved through dialogue with the University, AAPS can file a formal grievance. AAPS always advocates in the members’ best interests and supports you through the advocacy process until the matter is settled.

1. AAPS is a separate organization from UBC
