2021 Negotiations

As negotiations get underway here in the Summer of 2021, please be assured that the Negotiation Team has your best interests in mind. The Rep Council has assembled a Negotiations Resource Committee (NRC) to collect and prioritize members’ greatest concerns. These concerns have been shared with the Negotiations Team, and the team will continue to communicate with the NRC throughout the negotiations process. Click here for NRC member contact information. 

Below you will also find a Negotiations Summary Report and negotiation documents. Please be aware that these documents are being shared in the interest of unity and transparency with the FA membership. Also, the terms set forth in these current documents are by no means final.

Note: Should a deal not be struck before the end of the current contract period, your rights as an FA member will remain in place as per the previous contract until an agreement is reached.
