UNBCFA on strike

(Ottawa – November 7, 2019) Members of the University of Northern British Columbia Faculty Association (UNBC-FA) are on strike after negotiations with the employer broke off earlier today. Picket lines are up at the UNBC campuses in Prince George and Terrace.

Faculty Association president Stephen Rader says the employer is demanding concessions on maternity/parental leave, seniority/right of first refusal, and tenure and promotion.

"The faculty association is disappointed to find our members on the picket line again, and remains committed to negotiating a fair contract."
