Your Constituency Groups

A constituency is a group of employees designated by the Governors of the University of Alberta who are represented by the AASUA as their bargaining agent. The employer appoints academic staff members to one of seven constituency groups, each group having its own terms and conditions of employment, under the collective agreement. A “Letter of Appointment” states which constituency group a member belongs to.
