The University of Northern British Columbia’s Faculty Association issued a 72-hour job action notice this morning.
The association unionized last spring and began collective agreement negotiations in May of last year.
Rob van Adrichem is UNBC’s Vice-President of External Relations.
He says the school and the association are in agreement in over 70% of the articles, with compensation being the main stumbling block.
While a strike notice has been issued, what that actually means for the school and students still isn’t clear.
The impact a strike would have on regional campuses, like the one at Terrace, is also unclear.
Negotiations continue this week, with the faculty in a legal strike position on Thursday morning.
