How to Use the Collection

This page pertains to the Collective Agreement Collection.

Career Research

The collection can be used to support career research in various ways. For example, review collective agreements to familiarize yourself with the structure and language of agreements and to compare terms of employment among institutions of interest.

When using this collection to make important decisions about careers, be sure to consult the appropriate union office to obtain the most current agreement and other supporting documents, such as Letters of Understanding.  If a more recent agreement is available, please contact the responsible student librarian so the collection can be updated.
