The preliminary agreement includes approximately 950 employees who offer courses at the two Vancouver Community College sites. Members of the Faculty Association are expected to vote on the agreement by the end of May. “VCC and the VCC Faculty Association have both worked hard to reach this interim agreement. I congratulate everyone involved for setting up a stable learning environment for students. ” – Approximately 306,000 unionized workers in B.C public sector occupations have contracts that expired between March 31, 2010 and December 31, 2010. I recommend that VCC negotiators and faculty associations reach an interim agreement as part of the negotiations. This is another example of the kind of cooperation needed in these difficult times. VANCOUVER – CUPE 4627, a support officer at Vancouver Community College, ratified a preliminary agreement that was reached last weekend. The government has already announced its intention to control wage spending during this round of negotiations. In order to protect jobs and preserve the essential services on which Colombians depend, the province has no resources for further wage increases because collective agreements are renewed. “I would like to congratulate our chief negotiator, Jo Hansen, the negotiating committee and our national representative for their perseverance and commitment,” said CUPE 4627 President Chris Joyce. He stressed that negotiations began in July and that many meetings are needed to reach an agreement. Vancouver Community College entered into a two-year tentative agreement with the Vancouver Community Faculty Association under the government`s mandate in 2010, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said.
VCCFA has been a collective bargaining partner for all members of the Vancouver Community College faculty for more than 60 years. We are committed to promoting and maintaining good working conditions for all faculties. More than two-thirds of these workers have in the meantime renegotiated contracts that were due to expire in 2010, including agreements covering 99% of health care workers. This collection is a great resource for students, graduates or anyone who is currently looking for a job.
