Patrick Colford, then president of the New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL), called the new legislation a “great victory for the labour movement” and the culmination of decades of lobbying by union activists. The new legislation means that in New Brunswick, “employers will no longer be able to recognize the power of a certified union to negotiate a first collective agreement.” Negotiations since the court`s favourable decision have been laborious. Finally, the two parties found themselves in a conciliation procedure in order to bring them together with a neutral third party. On February 14, PTSU members organized a rally on the UNB campus, supported by members of other campus unions. The interim agreement was reached the following week.

In 2007, the Association organized contract academics and in 2008 was certified for part-time faculties and librarians under the NB Labour and Employment Board.  During the same period, the organization participated in a proposal by the provincial government of Premier Shawn Graham to replace three university campuses with polytechnics.  The New Brunswick Teachers` Association (AUNBT) is a union union union of the University of New Brunswick. AUNBT was founded in 1956 as a faculty association and in the same year joined the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT).
In 1979, the organization was certified by the Industrial Relations Board as a bargaining partner for full-time university staff, both faculty and librarian, on UNB`s two main campuses. The first collective agreement came into force in 1980. The process of establishing a collective agreement for university workers has been ongoing for almost seven years. PTSU was certified in March 2013 by the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and began negotiating a year later for its first contract. A year later, PSAC led an organizational offensive to unionize UNB staff members who are not part of the existing PTSU group. A lawsuit was then filed by UNB. In April 2017, Judge Garnett of the Court of Queen`s Bench rejected UNB`s request to deny UNION certification to PSAC. Contract Academic Employees, consisting of a bargaining unit of part-time instructors and librarians, was certified by AUNBT in 2008. The bargaining unit consists of “All persons employed by the University of New Brunswick in part-time contract training in a course of credit or who are employed as part-time librarians on all University of New Brunswick campuses, with the exception of deans, associates or assistants, those who are above the dean`s rank, the university library , the members of the faculty, the members of the Govers Council, are busy. persons for whom a union has bargaining rights under the Labour Relations Act and those who are excluded by the Labour Relations Act. In this rate unit, there are approximately 600 employees who teach 1,500 courses per year.
On 13 January 2014, AUNBT went on strike; they were locked up the next day. This was the first employment operation in the organization`s history and lasted three weeks, until February 1, 2014.
