UBC Faculty Association in Mediation for Contract

Letter from UBC Faculty Association president issued today following a meeting of the Faculty Association Executive.

Dear Member,

Your Faculty Association bargaining committee has been negotiating contract language and monetary issues with the UBC Administration since February 15, 2006, and has not yet reached an agreement.

At 13:00 today we started the mediation process at the BC Labour Relations Board with Mark Brown (Registrar, Deputy Vice-Chair and Associate Chair of mediation division) as mediator. We shall communication updates as soon as they are able.

Elliot Burnell
President, on behalf of the Bargaining Team
