KFA New Collective Agreement Update March 1 2024

Hello KFA members,

I want to take this opportunity to provide you with the current status of the implementation of our new KPU-KFA Collective Agreement, April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2025.

  • The new KPU/KFA 2022-2025 Collective Agreement is currently being finalized and will be available on our website shortly.
  • The retro-active payments are currently being processed by KPU Payroll. As outlined in our last message of January 15th, the Employer committed to have this payment applied by the end of May. We are continuing to engage with the KPU Administration to speed up this process.
  • As mentioned in my January 15th communication, a new ongoing Health Benefits Fund was established to cover health expenses for Non-Regular Type 1 faculty. We are still working with KPU Administration to develop the guidelines and process for this Fund administration. When this work is complete, we will put out further communication to our members with the details of this benefit.
  • We have received confirmation from KPU Administration that all benefit changes for Regular and Non-Regular Type 2 faculty have now been made by Manulife. The KPU Administration has provided an update via Today@KPU on February 22, 2024 on the changes to our coverage. 

In Solidarity,

Raphael Lagoutin
