Update from Your Negotiations Team

Following up on our Dec 12, 2014 protocol agreement, we have now confirmed two dates to commence collective bargaining in late February and mid-March.

Thank you to all faculty members who have thoughtfully offered input and insight into what is needed to maintain and improve the quality of education at Emily Carr University.

We recognize that student learning conditions depend on faculty working conditions. As the proportion of public funding for post-secondary education decreases, there are increasingly heavier pressures and stresses on both students and faculty. We will continue to do our best to ensure that faculty and students have the resources and infrastructure needed to sustain a healthy teaching and learning environment.

Respectfully,

Rita Wong
on behalf of the Negotiations Team (David MacWilliam, Dennis Burke, Jane Slemon, Leah Squance)
