UNBC faculty strike continues, no agreement despite the introduction of a special mediator

December 2, 2019

The BC government has appointed a special mediator to help resolve a dispute between the University of Northern British Columbia’s Faculty Association and the institution’s administration that has resulted in a three-week faculty strike. UNBC’s Faculty Association reported on Thursday evening that the provincially appointed special mediator adjourned the process with the bargaining teams following extensive bargaining periods that ended with no agreement being reached between the two parties. Amidst the strike, UNBC students are staging rallies and sit-ins at their school’s administration building. UNBC | CBC (BC)
