The McMaster University Faculty Association was founded in 1951. It represents and protects the interests of all faculty members and senior academic librarians of McMaster University*. It is not a union, but a professional association responsible for collective bargaining with the Administration. It is recognized by the Board of Governors in a document, last revised in 1988, which sets out the role of “The Joint Administration/Faculty Association Committee to Consider University Financial Matters and to Discuss and Negotiate Matters Related to Terms and Conditions of Employment of Faculty.” The document is reproduced in the Faculty Handbook.
