Spousal Provision in the 2011-15 Collective Agreement

If a prospective member has questions about this provision about potential spousal hiring (see below), we urge you to speak to a QUFA staff member.

Article 25.7.1 Exceptions to the appointments procedures may be made in the following circumstances: (d) If the spouse or partner of a successful candidate for an academic position at the University or the spouse or partner of a person already holding an academic appointment at the University applies for an advertised academic position at the University, the spouse’s or partner’s file shall be reviewed by the Appointments Committee of the Unit that has advertised the position, and if qualified, shall be short-listed for that position.
