2014–2018 URA-AFT Contract (CBA)

Other Current Agreements


  • The collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is the primary union contract that spells out the terms and conditions of employment.  The current CBA completely replaces the archived/expired versions of the CBA.
  • A side letter agreement is usually associated with the CBA and provides clarification and/or modification of the existing CBA language.
  • A settlement agreement typically comes from a dispute over the CBA.  For example, the union may interpret the CBA language differently than the University or file a grievance over the University’s failure to follow the CBA.
  • memorandum of agreement (MOA) or memorandum of understanding (MOU) is used to settle a new dispute or potential dispute not usually covered by the CBA.  For example, the union may negotiate over a new policy being considered by the University.
