UNBC and Faculty Association Continue Working On Offers

Monday, March 16, 2015 @ 9:37 AM

Prince George, B.C.- The picket lines remain in place,  and while there  is no  exact time for a face to face meeting,  UNBC’s Vice President  External Relations, Rob Van Adrichem says  both sides continue working on  proposals.“That’s not to say talks have broken off” says Van Adrichem, “both sides are working (on proposals).”

He says  reviewing proposals and counter proposals takes time “because it’s not as simple as each  person receiving  1% more”.

The UNBC Faculty Association had expected to hear  by  noon Sunday on when the University would like to  meet.

Although  settling this  labour dispute is a priority, Van Adrichem says  there  is a great deal of work to be done not only on the contract proposals, but staff are also working on the  new budget for presentation to the Board of Governors.

The strike started March 5th.
