The vote on the ratification of our new collective agreement was concluded Tuesday night, and faculty voted overwhelmingly to ratify it.
A tentative deal was reached at VCC by their support staff, CUPE Local 4627.
The tentative contract is for a 4-year, no-concessions deal, with a total of a 4% increase spread over the final two years of the agreement. This local has been in bargaining for 15 months, with four months of rotating strike action.
If you have spent your PD funds for this fiscal year, which ends March 30th, you are eligible for a top-up of $400, which is called PDSF.
To apply for this, print the PD/PDSF Application form from this site, on the Documents tab, or from the College intranet. Have your Dept. Chair and Div. Chair sign and code it.
The next committee meeting to approve these requests is March 21st, so forms with receipts should be submitted by March 18th.
