When people think of a collective agreement, they often think about the benefits that it provides them, such as decent wages, dental insurance, health benefits, and access to the post-doctoral support fund.
The collective agreement also provides unionized post-docs with a variety of rights, including regulations on hours worked, fair working conditions, a variety of leaves, a grievance procedure, and paid vacation. Please CLICK HERE to access the Unit 3 ‘Know Your Rights’ document, which provides simplified version of many of the rights contained in your collective agreement.
During the Postdoctoral Fellow contract negotiations, the Employer confirmed the rights of Postdocs to resign their employment positions. Please click here to see this letter.
