Question of the Week | Nov. 21

Do you support UNBC’s faculty with their strike efforts?


BACKGROUND:

University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) Terrace campus faculty members walked off the job Nov. 7 to protest for fairer working conditions and higher wages after talks to negotiate a deal fell through with administrators.

Classes are still cancelled as the strike enters its third week. University administrators and faculty association still remain at the bargaining table. In an update posted to their website on Nov. 21, UNBC administrators say they are reviewing the most recent proposal from the faculty association.

Both teams acknowledged the disconnect in compensation structure for faculty, which has put wages for UNBC professors behind other universities in the province. Rights to an appeal process for tenure are also part of bargaining discussions.
