Profs Send Letter to UNBC Board of Governors
Prince George, B.C. – While the strike by the members of UNBC’s Faculty Association continues, a number of current and former Research Chairs at UNBC have signed their names to a letter delivered to the University President and the Chair of the Board of Governors.
The letter calls on both sides in the dispute to “work together to fix the systemic problem with our pay structure.”
The change is needed say the professors in order to “retain our best people and recruit the next generation of excellent faculty.”
The letter, signed by 17 current or former Research Chairs, says the compensation challenge can be addressed if UNBC changes its priorities.
The strike started March 5th and there is no indication of when the two sides will return to the bargaining table.
