UNBC Faculty Association issues strike notice

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.
