The aim of Faculty Bargaining Services (FBS) is to support participating institutions in both bargaining and academic contract administration for faculty, librarians, faculty paid by course, teaching assistants, research assistants and post-doctoral fellows. The program of services remains collaborative and participatory, and continues to evolve based on the needs of participating institutions. As part of these services, the website offers access to several Canadian databases, newsletters and newsfeeds. In addition, information is provided on upcoming workshops and training sessions, FBS and its participating institutions and the role of field officers. Full access is granted exclusively to those administrators in participating institutions who have been identified as assuming a direct responsibility for Collective and Framework Agreement bargaining and contract administration.
