NEW! Anomalies Fund Application Deadline Extended
Given that the new collective agreement between the Dalhousie Board of Governors and Dalhousie Faculty Association is not yet ratified, the deadline for applications to the Anomalies Fund has been extended. Applications for salary adjustment in 2018-19 must be submitted by June 30, 2018. The Association Board Committee’s decision will be communicated in writing to the Member no later than September 30, 2018. Any salary adjustments will be retroactive to July 1, 2018.

NEW! Updated Documents for Tenure-Stream Appointments and Tenure/Promotion/Reappointment
In light of the recently-ratified collective agreement, DFA has updated two important documents for our members. If you are beginning a tenure-stream appointment at Dalhousie, please read Laying the Foundation - it will help you begin planning for a successful reappointment and positive tenure review. The second document, Under the Microscope, outlines the tenure, promotion and reappointment processes, as well as the rights and responsibilities of those involved in the review process. If you have questions about either of these documents, please email the DFA office at email@example.com or call 902 494-3722.
During the last couple months of collective bargaining, the DFA took a break from publishing our monthly e-bulletin, News You Can Use. Now that the agreement has been ratified, News You Can Use will begin again this month. (In the meantime, if you want to check out the publication, click here for the December issue.)
