The Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association and the university have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.
According to the Ministry of Finance, the agreement has been reached under the provincial government’s sustainable services negotiating mandate, which includes a three-year term
and general wage increases of two per cent each year.
The tentative agreement covers about 900 faculty members represented by the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators Local 2. The members work at the two main campuses, in Kamloops and in Williams Lake, as faculty instructors, counsellors, librarians and instructional support.
Further details about the agreement will be available once the ratification processes for the faculty association, the Thompson Rivers University board of governors and the University Public Sector Employers' Association have been completed.
Nearly 240,000 public sector employees are now covered by tentative or ratified agreements reached under the mandate.
