Andre FoucaultExecutive Director

André Foucault is our Executive Director for Labour Relations. André has been with the Association in this capacity since 2006. He supports the activities of the Association’s Executive and its Officers in all aspect of their work, be it occupational health and safety, collective bargaining, training or with the handling of grievances. André also provides advice to newly hired faculty members when it comes to the negotiation of the terms and conditions of employment to be contained in their letters of appointment.

He is the point person for RFA members who need to consult with their Association on a wide range of issues such as tenure and promotion matters, sabbatical questions, disciplinary issues, workplace accommodation, medical leaves, safety and health, academic freedom, general compensation such as salary and benefits as well as the general application of the collective agreement. He also supports the RFA Officers in dealing with workload and intellectual property issues.

Pre-tenured faculty are urged to contact André for any support they might need from him and the RFA Grievance Officer in responding to Annual Assessments, Intermediate Tenure Reviews, Normal and Final Tenure Reviews. They are also encouraged to reserve some time in their first year to meet with André to chat about the tenure process and its many facets.

Members should feel confident that all consultations with the RFA are treated as confidential and the Association and its staff will take no action on your behalf without your explicit approval.

André can be reached at the RFA Office or by calling his cell phone # 416-305-9640. You can also drop by the RFA Office at KHS 46 for a coffee or for a visit to Balzac.
