The Collective Agreement is a written contract between the APUO and the Board of Governors of the University of Ottawa which provides the terms of employment for professors (other than visiting professors), language teachers, counsellors, librarians, and certain research fellows working for the University of Ottawa. Through the Collective Agreement, the University recognizes the APUO as the exclusive bargaining agent of all those employees it represents. The Collective Agreement is normally re-negotiated every three years.
