Faculty at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) have now been on strike for almost two weeks. The UNBC Faculty Association has been working hard to negotiate a fair deal, but the university administration continues to demand unacceptable concessions on promotion and tenure and job protections for contract faculty, as well as an experimental salary structure that would be unique to UNBC. There is no reason UNBC can’t accept the same kind of salary structure used at successful universities across Canada.
Support UNBC faculty today. Send the university administration a letter demanding they sit down and negotiate a fair contract that recognizes and respects the important contributions faculty make at the university.
