No Classes at UNBC… Again
Prince George, B.C. – There are no classes at UNBC again today as the strike by the Faculty Association continues.The University received a counter offer from the Faculty Association on Saturday, and was expected to advise the Faculty Association by noon yesterday on when talks might resume.
As of 9:30 last night, there was no indication from either side on when, or if, they would be returning to the bargaining table.
The weekend saw students stage another rally, this time on the steps of the Prince George Courthouse.
Speaker after speaker expressed support for the faculty’s battle for wage parity, saying without it, professors could leave the university to teach where they are offered better salaries.
Faculty Association members have been on the picket lines since Thursday March 5th.
