Terms of Employment

Terms and Conditions of Employment

On December 13, 2021, the College Employer Council (CEC) used a provision of the Colleges Collective Bargaining Act (CCBA) to impose Terms and Conditions of Employment on full-time and partial-load faculty.

UPDATE: When a strike was averted by referring outstanding matters to binding interest arbitration, the parties agreed that the imposed Terms and Conditions of Employment would remain frozen in place until Arbitrator Kaplan issues his decision on the content of a new Collective Agreement.

The terms of employment currently in effect can be found at this link Academic Terms and Conditions of Employment.

What follows is some text that refers to the most recent Collective Agreement.

Your Contract, Their Contract, Our Contract

If you are a full-time or partial-load faculty member at Fanshawe College, you are covered by the province-wide Academic Employees Collective Agreement (CA). It is a legally binding contract: it specifies the rights and obligations you have as a member of the bargaining unit, and the rights and obligations of your employer. The contract is enforced through legally binding dispute resolution processes including Grievance Arbitration (Article 32) and Workload Resolution Arbitration (WRA).

Printed copies of the 2017-2021 Academic Employees Collective Agreement have been distributed to all current full-time faculty. Fanshawe will provide partial-load faculty with a copy at the start of their next contract.

A PDF version of the most recently expired collective agreement can be found here: 2017-2021 Academic Collective Agreement.


Partial-load faculty should pay particular attention to Article 26. We have also prepared an FAQ.

Full-time faculty can refer to our FAQ. The pay grid can be found in Article 14. Full-time professors can find the workload provisions in Article 11.
