The collective agreement of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) covers the period from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020. The collective agreement of the Association of Professional Directors (APA) covers the period from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020. This agreement is entered into by and between the Board of Directors of Higher Education and the Massachusetts Teachers Association/National Education Association as the exclusive bargaining agent for positions in the bargaining unit.
APA recommends that legal documents (such as cases, articles of association or collective agreements) be cited in accordance with the Bluebook: a Uniform System of Citation. The Canadian equivalent of this U.S. Legal Citation Guide is The Canadian Uniform Guide Legal Citation. However, as it is not clear how a collective agreement is cited, I propose the following example: “This agreement shall be entered into between the Board of Directors of Higher Education or its successor (hereinafter the employers) and the Massachusetts Teachers Association/Massachusetts Community College Council (hereinafter the Association) as the exclusive negotiator for all workers in the bargaining unit described in Article I. Both parties to this agreement recognize the unique contributions of Community Colleges to education in this Commonwealth. In addition, the Parties recognise the need to strengthen and secure community training. The purpose of this agreement is to support harmonious relations between the employer and the association. The Parties undertake to maintain and improve the quality of education services offered by Community Colleges. To this end, the parties acknowledge their legal obligations, in accordance with the provisions of the General Statutes, Chapter 150E, and the rules and regulations set forth therein, to negotiate in good faith with respect to wages, hours, productivity and performance standards and other working conditions. The Parties undertake to explore other effective approaches to negotiations and labour relations.
