The St. Jerome’s University Academic Staff Association (SJU ASA) is the certified bargaining agent for all faculty and professional librarians at St. Jerome’s University, a public Roman Catholic university federated with the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario. It is an independent, democratically-run labour union run for and by its members. It also serves as the faculty association for all academic staff at SJU.
The SJU ASA is committed to promoting the welfare of the academic staff of the University, keeping in mind the good of the University as a whole.
In pursuit of this goal, the SJU ASA
- bargains collectively on behalf of academic staff at the University,
- protects academic freedom while advancing teaching, research, and other pursuits of the academic staff,
- promotes collegial governance, and
- safeguards the academic integrity of the University
It works cooperatively with all external agencies, including the SJU administration and Board of Governors, who share our goal of making St. Jerome’s a better place to work, learn, and serve one’s community.
