Recruitment Policy Update: Definition and Category of Academic Staff

The procedure under the UAPPOL Recruitment Policy (Appendix A) Definition and Categories of Excluded Employees, Postdoctoral Fellows, Academic Colleagues and Excluded Academic Staff was amended to reflect new and updated categories and definitions of staff:
  • Excluded Employees: Executive Members, Academic Administrators, Management and Professional Staff (MAPS)
  • Postdoctoral Fellows (PDF): Employees, Trainees, Guests
  • Staff for the purpose of the staff Light Rail Transit (LRT) Program
  • University Academic Employees

What has changed?

  • The addition of Excluded Employees. Excluded Employees:
    • remain university academic employees, but are no longer designated as academic staff;
    • are excluded from the Board and AASUA collective agreements.
  • PDFs are included in the procedure and are represented by the Postdoctoral Fellows Association (PDFA).
  • The definition of staff for the purpose of eligibility for the LRT Program, which is now in alignment with the ONEcard use of the term “staff”.
  • Clarification of University Academic Employees.
Please refer to the updated Recruitment Policy (Appendix A) Definition and Categories of Excluded Employees, Postdoctoral Fellows, Academic Colleagues and Excluded Academic Staff in UAPPOL for detailed information.
