Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) Consultation

Your University of Waterloo Staff Association (UWSA) has been working closely with the University since 2016 to update our Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). Through the efforts of our dedicated team, and with support and input from our colleagues in Human Resources and the Secretariat’s Office, we have arrived at a draft agreement in principle.

We held a series of consultation sessions to let you know what the updated MOA means for UW staff. Questions asked by attendees have been provided and answered below.

On July 14, 2022, UWSA Members received an email invitation to participate in an online vote. The email was sent by the University Secretariat with the subject line "MOA Vote Now Open". If you are a UWSA Member and you did not receive an invitation to vote, please contact us.

To account for vacations, the voting period is a full twenty (20) days: July 14 to August 2, 2022.

The process of updating our MOA has been a long and demanding journey. Compared to our current MOA, which was adopted in 2008, the updated MOA strengthens the UWSA so we can better advocate for improved staff working conditions. We appreciate your support throughout the past several years, and we encourage you to contact us about this or any other work done by the UWSA on your behalf.

Your voice starts here!
