Last year, Brock University Faculty Association ratified a new collective agreement that contained important contract provisions designed to advance measures aimed at restoring and renewing Indigenous practices and knowledge systems. In a recent article published in Academic Matters, Spy Dénommé-Welch, Associate Professor in the Department of Education at Brock University and Brock University Faculty Association Negotiating Team member, along with Larry Savage, Professor in the Department of Labour Studies at Brock University and Chief Negotiator for the Brock University Faculty Association, reflect on the process, outcomes, and lessons learned from Brock University’s experience pursuing Indigenization through collective bargaining.

The authors' thoughtful reflections are valuable for all education bargaining units as we work towards Indigenization of higher learning, including at the University of Waterloo.
