Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA)

The CBA governs numerous facets of faculty employment such as salary, benefits, teaching reviews, tenure and promotion, academic freedom, grievances, complaints, and contract renewals. A committee of United Academics representatives meets with University of Alaska administration to renegotiate the CBA every three years.

UNAC disagrees that the administration team’s “Last Best Offer” from May 2022 has been legally implemented. Bargaining ground rules state that the current CBA stays in effect during the negotiation process. Impasse has not been reached; the two teams have future mediation dates set to continue discussions.
