UNBC Faculty Association strike in gesture of solidarity with colleagues

November 8, 2019

The Faculty Association at the University of Northern British Columbia announced Thursday morning that it will strike. UNBC Faculty Association President Stephen Radar told the Prince George Citizen that although the latest offer from UNBC’s administration responds to tenured and tenure-track professors’ demand to bring their salaries in line with those of comparable universities, this gain would come at the cost of “leaving the rest of the academic staff who make up the Faculty Association [librarians, senior lab instructors] out in the cold.” UNBC reports that the Prince George campus will remain open during a strike, but picket lines may be expected.
