UNBC yesterday (22 November) published another public overview of the offer it last submitted to the faculty, which led to a strong reaction from the union. „The employer is ready to continue negotiations and continues to advocate for an agreement around the table,“ the statement said. „Delays in all kinds of collective bargaining are unfortunate,“ said Stephen Rader, PRESIDENT of the FA. „But we are now at a point where we have no turning back for the semester, and we are very worried about our students.“ „UNBC is a really important part of the North B. C, and I want to make sure that the teachers` voices are heard and that they get a fair shake,“ he said. „The collective bargaining process is an important part of our system, and I hope they will talk to the employer and reach a fair agreement.“ „UNBC`s faculty ends for the second time in five years,“ he said. „The Faculty Association is disappointed that we are meeting our members on the picket line and continues to promote the negotiation of a fair and sectoral contract.“ The strike action officially began 17 days ago, after the end of the agreement between the university and the association on June 30, 2019. The employer then submitted a proposal on Friday morning to „maximize pay increases for all faculties… within a competitive compensation structure. READ MORE: UnBC`s faculties association suspends strikes, just opposes the university „On the union side, we try from the beginning to negotiate an agreement.

Our employer, on the other hand, has been reluctant to come to the negotiating table on several occasions and, in our opinion, is slow to respond to some of our proposals,“ he explains. „The employer thanks the Special Ombudsman for his work and looks forward to going through this process and entering into a collective agreement with the AI,“ UNBC said in a statement. UNBC students, the BC Nurses Union and Skeena Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach joined the UNBC faculty strike in front of the main Terrace Campus building on November 15. (Brittany Gervais/Terrace Standard) On Thursday morning, the faculties association returned with a revised offer and a salary target that took over the university to see how the financial commitment would go. Maggie Biagioni, student officer at the BC Nurses Union, said it was important for union members to show their support for UNBC`s faculty. „We need to reach a branch collective agreement because it is so important to the long-term sustainability of a university we love so much,“ Rader said. UNBC-FA employs approximately 500 full-time and part-time members, including De Tenured and Tenure Track faculties, chief laboratory professors, librarians and conventionist science specialists. „I think it`s fair to say that the employer tried to share our membership. The unanimous vote of confidence that the UNBCFA negotiating team gave this morning to the UNBCFA negotiating team should send a strong signal to the employer that this kind of stunt will only strengthen our determination to reach a normal collective agreement. The Faculty Association also criticized the administration for seeking an agreement to break contracts with some of its members who are not covered by the collective agreement. According to the Faculty Association, approval of the measure could legally threaten the union and result in „serious financial risks.“
