Interest-Based Approach to Bargaining

Concordia University of Edmonton’s Board of Governors (the Board) provided the bargaining team with the mandate to engage in an interest-based bargaining approach, with the following interests/criteria to guide Concordia University’s negotiations at all times:

  • Support Concordia University of Edmonton’s commitment to institutional quality and fiscal sustainability;
  • Strengthen research and scholarship capacity and accountability;
  • Strengthen teaching capacity, recognizing excellence in teaching outcomes;
  • Update Collective Agreement to align with new university Mission and Vision;
  • Retain and attract faculty who are excellent researchers, scholars, and teachers;
  • Remain competitive relative to comparator universities; and
  • Retain capacity to efficiently manage the university based on a total compensation model for faculty and all staff.

The Concordia University of Edmonton bargaining team continues to work within this board mandate, reporting progress to the Board on a regular basis.
