Frequently Asked Questions

Show Answer Why can't I find the agreement I'm looking for?

The Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) posted on this website are those submitted in accordance with section 132 of the Labour Relations Code.

If an agreement has not yet been ratified, or a final copy has not been submitted, it will not appear on this website.

The government is subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act with respect to making agreements available that contain personal information like the names of employees. Such information will be redacted prior to the agreement being made available for search.

If you have questions, comments or concerns about the Government of Alberta CBA search page, you may contact the CBA Analyst at 780‑427‑8301.

Show Answer Why should I file my agreement with the Government of Alberta?

Filing your collective agreement, as required under section 132 of the Labour Relations Code, helps improve the quality of information on collective bargaining settlements. The province uses this data to produce reports such as Bargaining Update which provides labour relations and collective bargaining information for the public.

Show Answer After an agreement is ratified how long does it take for the parties to draft and sign the new collective agreement?

Once an agreement has been negotiated it may go through several changes before a final copy is signed and filed which can take months.
