New collective agreements

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

File a CBA

The Labour Relations Code requires unions and employers to file a copy of their collective agreement with the Director of Mediation Services. Section 150.1 of the Labour Relations Code requires the filing of collective agreements within 30 days after entering into the agreement.

For more information, contact Mediation Services.

File a CBA

Include the following:

  • date of ratification – date on which terms were agreed to, not the signing date
  • number of employees covered by the collective agreement
  • Alberta Labour Relations Board (ALRB) certificate numbers, if applicable

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

Documents supporting the collective agreement such as Amendments, Letters of Understanding and Wage Re-opener results must also be filed by email or by contacting the CBA Analyst.
