TWU faculty unionize, select CLAC as their representative


Trinity Western University’s faculty have voted to unionize with the Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) as their representative. The representation vote took place in October 2021, but the results were sealed after TWU challenged the certification application through the British Columbia Labour Relations Board (BCLRB). The ballots were revealed after the BCLRB dismissed the university’s challenge, unveiling that 64% of faculty who participated in the vote favoured unionization. “We believe a modern labour relations framework will help create new supports and structures that will enhance the well-being of the university’s current and future educators,” said CLAC representative Nathan Mathews.
