Labour negotiation updates at CapilanoU and ECU, labour action at SFU


In British Columbia, labour negotiation updates and news on labour action have come from Capilano University, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and Simon Fraser University. CapilanoU and its faculty association recently met to discuss topics such as a wellness spending account, improved benefits, and community-based projects. ECU reached a tentative agreement with CUPE Local 15, which represents approximately 230 staff at the institution. At SFU, reports that members of the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) walked the picket line last week as an “indefinite teaching work stoppage” began at all campus locations. TSSU is reportedly striking for various changes including improved pay and a pension for sessional instructors.
