VANCOUVER—Three days of intense bargaining has produced a provincial framework deal for some CUPE college support workers. The template for agreement was reached late Sunday night by the College and Institutes Support Staff Bargaining Association (CISSBA) and the government’s BC Post Secondary Employers' Association.
Members of the BCIT Faculty and Staff Association (FSA) will resume strike action on December 3,
following the provincial government’s refusal to respond to FSA requests to negotiate fair wages this past weekend.
The LFA is able to send four delegates to the BCFED convention, in Vancouver. Along with other FPSE locals, delegates listened to a wide range of labour news from around the province.
On Wednesday, Noel Currie participated in a rally in support of workers out on strike, and those in collective bargaining around B.C.
There will be a one-day withdrawal of CUPE support staff services within the VCC Library on Wednesday, Nov. 28 and a one day withdrawal within the food services area on Thursday, Nov. 29
CUPE 4627 has advised the college that there will be no full withdrawal of services during the week of Nov. 26 or the week of Dec. 3.
