As the fall session begins on college campuses throughout B.C., bargaining has been completed for all College sector locals (CUPE 15, 1858, 2773, 2081, 3479 and 4951) with the exception of Vancouver Community College (CUPE 4627).
It’s a different story at universities, with some having reached agreements and others heading into or continuing bargaining this fall. University locals that have reached and ratified collective agreements are University of Northern BC (CUPE 3799), University of British Columbia (CUPE 116, 2278 and 2950) and CUPE 4163 Component 3 (Components 1 and 2 still in bargaining) at the University of Victoria.
CUPE 4879 at Thompson Rivers University has filed an application for mediation with the Labour Board. CUPE 3338 at Simon Fraser University is currently at the negotiating table and CUPE 3886 at Royal Roads University will be resuming negotiations soon.
