Brock, UNBC ratify collective agreements


Two universities have recently ratified collective agreements with unions. Brock University and Brock University Faculty Association have ratified an agreement that was tentatively reached earlier this month. The agreement includes an increase in the overall faculty and professional librarian complement, an expansion of mental health benefits, and the conversion of qualified members into new teaching-intensive appointments. At the University of Northern British Columbia, the university and CUPE Local 3799 have ratified a new collective agreement. The agreement includes changes such as general wage increases in line with BC’s Shared Recovery Mandate, two days of Indigenous employee leave, and group benefit increases.
