Bcit Faculty Collective Agreement

In recent years, the FSA has taken steps to change our previous agreement practices, including fewer agreements. Another aspect of this new approach is the publication of more CA Memags on our website than before. At BCIT`s request and because some agreements require it, the FSA will seek BCIT`s approval for the publication of CA Memags, which has never been published before. We also plan to publish CA Memags with comments to make its terms useful to members. If you have any questions about any of these Memags CA, please contact the FSA. In April, BCGEU professional teachers at colleges (not BCIT or Vancouver University) agreed on the first collective agreement in our sector during this round of negotiations. This agreement is a five-year contract with total wage increases of 5.5%, but no increase until April 2015. Minor adjustments have been made to extended health care and funding has increased slightly, but few other changes have been made. The process of preparing the latest version of the collective agreement for printing has been painfully slow. Despite the time spent between collective agreements, the employer refused to make most of the changes requested as part of the proofing process. If the new collective agreement is finally published, then it will always contain an inconsistent use of terms, ambiguous references and other minor issues that we hope to resolve.

In March, we proposed to the employer that only three errors in the collective agreement be corrected before the pressure was put. We have to hear. We intend to close the pressure of the 2010-14 agreement at the beginning of negotiations for its renewal. In this case, printed copies of the current agreement will be available before the summer. In the meantime, they refer to the 2007-10 collective agreement and the 2010-14 transaction agreement. The first round of negotiations for the renewal of the 2010/2014 FSA collective agreement took place on May 29, 2014 and several other dates are scheduled for June. At the January general meeting, FSA membership ratified the framework of a set of proposals that emerged on the subject of justice. A sum of the proposals will be available again after the presentation to the management of the company. Price updates are shared on our blog. The FSA conducted two interviews with its faculty members without being regularly taught about alternatives to the concept of “non-teaching faculty” used throughout the collective agreement.
