Re: Bargaining Bulletin #16 – Collective Bargaining Update
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with a brief update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC.
We are pleased to announce that the UBC Board of Governors has ratified the five-year collective agreement for BCGEU, representing child care staff at the Vancouver campus. The term of the agreement will be for the period May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2019. This agreement is now fully approved and in effect.
The agreement between the University and BCGEU (Vancouver) falls within the Provincial Government’s 2014 Economic Stability Mandate. To date, a number of settlements across the province have been reached within this mandate: http://www.fin.gov.bc.ca/psec/bargaining/index.htm.
Thank you for your interest. We will continue to provide updates as the process unfolds.
An overview of collective bargaining (including information on the bargaining units) is available at http://www.hr.ubc.ca/collective-bargaining/.
