Bargaining 2021:

College faculty stood in solidarity through this round of bargaining despite a pandemic and the unconstitutional constraints of Bill 124. We authorized a strike mandate, we rejected a management offer that failed to address our demands, and we finalized a collective agreement that achieves significant gains in compensation, Indigenization and equity, including addressing partial-load issues. A Workload Task Force was established to examine workload for full-time and partial-load faculty, including counsellors and librarians. The Task Force will complete its report with recommendations before the next round of bargaining, which will provide a framework for updating the outdated workload formula.
