Students at the University of Northern British Columbia will resume classes on Monday, as the Association of Colleges on Strike (UNBC-FA) withdraws picket lines. The administration and faculty of the University of British Columbia North have a name in mind when it comes to agreeing on an arbitrator to break the deadlock in the conclusion of a new contract. UNBC-FA employs approximately 500 full-time and part-time members, including De Tenured and Tenure Track faculties, chief laboratory professors, librarians and conventionist science specialists. In an update to its members, the Faculty Association stated that some progress has been made during mediation, but key issues remain that need to be resolved. “The parties did agree on an arbitrator before the end of last year,” UNBC spokesman Matt Wood said this week.
“However, this person still needs to be contacted to make sure they are doing the work. Once we have completed this process, we can start talking about actual arbitration, dates, etc.. “The employer is ready to continue negotiations and continues to advocate for an agreement around the table,” the statement said. UNBC-FA serves the interests of nearly 500 full-time and part-time members on Prince George and UNBC regional campuses. All faculty faculties, including long-time and tenure-Track faculty members, chief laboratory professors, librarians and contract specialists of all categories – are automatically members of the UNBC FA and are entitled to their services. Students at the University of Northern British Columbia will return to the classroom on Monday after losing more than three weeks of study due to work riots within the institution`s faculties association. “UNBC`s faculty ends for the second time in five years,” he said. “The Faculty Association is disappointed that we are meeting our members on the picket line and continues to promote the negotiation of a fair and sectoral contract.” Meanwhile, a small group of students who had been sleeping in the UNBC administrative building since Wednesday and insisting on a resolution and a return to classes, said they would finish their sit-in with the support of the faculties association.
