In accordance with Article 2 of the Collective Agreement, all Academic Staff at MRU shall, as a condition of their continued employment, be regular members of the Association. Such membership begins on the date of commencement of appointment and membership dues, as approved by the Membership and specified in the Bylaws, are deducted by MRU payroll and remitted to the Association.
Regular Membership in the MRFA entitles you to representation from the MRFA in collective bargaining with respect to salary and benefit matters, workload, working conditions and all other terms and conditions of employment. The MRFA provides confidential advice, assistance, and representation of our members regarding issues of grievances, faculty welfare and institutional processes – this includes representation of members needing workplace accommodation (e.g. medical) or facing potential discipline. Membership in the MRFA further entitles members to all other privileges and services provided by the MRFA through its staff and committees and in the Faculty Centre.
