First, we are able to negotiate a collective agreement that reflects the nature of our work and sets conditions that must be met by our employer, the University of New Brunswick. Arbitrary decisions and actions of an employer are not permitted with respect to the content of the contract. We will have a common voice and we will be able to make democratic decisions in our workplace. Higher education graduates unionized at other universities in North America have made great strides in negotiations, including child care and eye care, international student assistance and professional development, intellectual property and academic freedoms, to name a few. To access the various collective agreements, please use the links on the right. The Association of New Brunswick Teachers (AUNBT) is a Canadian union that represents full-time and part-time professors, teachers and university librarians at the University of New Brunswick in the province of New Brunswick, Canada. AUNBT was founded in 1956 as a faculty association and in the same year joined the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT). In 1979, the organization was certified by the Industrial Relations Board as a bargaining partner for full-time university staff, both faculty and librarian, on UNB`s two main campuses. The first collective agreement came into force in 1980. All postgraduate and RAAS at UNB will receive the rights and benefits stipulated in our collective agreement. All members of the UGSW have the right, if necessary, to be supported by the Union.
Membership of the Union gives the right to participate fully in local elections and general assemblies. The Union negotiates and acts on behalf of all its members. The more postgraduate TAs and ASRs, the more our decisions will reflect our collective concerns. In 2007, the Association organized contract academics and in 2008 was certified for part-time faculties and librarians under the NB Labour and Employment Board.  During the same period, the organization participated in a proposal by the provincial government of Premier Shawn Graham to replace three university campuses with polytechnics.
