Brescia faculty signs contract that sees improved workloads, pay

October 18, 2016

Brescia University College and the Brescia Faculty Association have negotiated a collective agreement that OCUFA reports has secured workloads and salaries for Brescia faculty that are comparable with peer institutions. The deal was ratified by the Brescia Board of Trustees last week. “It’s a small faculty and it’s a small (affiliate) university and I think this agreement shows that we continue to make progress,” commented Brescia Board Chairperson Larry MacKinnon. “We’re an institution that prides itself on education of women leaders but before we got what we’ve got this time around, I felt it was contradicting that message,” stated Brescia Faculty Association President Melissa Jean, who described the agreement as “a step in the right direction.” London Free Press | OCUFA
