The University of Calgary’s Board of Governors, Human Resources Governance Committee, and the Graduate Students’ Association have ratified a new Collective Agreement. According to UCalgary Provost Dru Marshall, negotiations were smooth. “A shared goal at the table was to ensure graduate student employees were aware of their rights and obligations,” Marshall said. According to GSA President Brit Paris, the new agreement clarifies the language of the Collective Agreement to ensure that student employees understand the university’s obligations to them as an employer. Paris added that GSA representatives are “pleased” with the Agreement, which expires in 2020. UCalgary
