Five BC colleges have come to a tentative memorandum of settlement, setting them on the path to local collective agreement negotiations.
The provincial memorandum was reached between the Post-Secondary Employers Association and parties to the BCGEU Faculty Common Agreement today.
Coast Mountain College, Northern Lights College, Camosun College, Selkirk College, and Okanagan College are all covered under the agreement.
The memorandum paves the way towards free negotiations of local collective agreements for the schools.
More than 1 thousand faculty employees are covered by the memorandum, which is in line with the Sustainable Services Negotiating Mandate.
