The Association of Higher Education and Faculties eventually ratified a four-year collective agreement that did not provide for a wage increase in the first year, followed by 0.75 percent and a one percent increase in the second and third years.

In any case, if you work remotely, the length of your working day should be the same as if you were at your usual workplace.
