Two straight-forward but complex questions are addressed: how much time does it take to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement covering faculty in post-secondary institutions and what factors influence in the length of time involved? Are there any responses which will make sense? Can we offer any guidance? Permit first a few anecdotal stories and then a discussion about the internal and external factors that inform the answer to these questions and why the best answer may well be, “it depends.”
