BCIT Faculty on Strike

Members of the BCIT Faculty and Staff Association (FSA) will resume strike action on December 3,
following the provincial government’s refusal to respond to FSA requests to negotiate fair wages this past weekend.

“The provincial government refuses to authorize BCIT to negotiate wages that match those of other post-secondary institutions.
The Minister of Advanced Education won’t speak to us and the Premier has not made a move to invest in the people who will deliver her skills plan. Their silence this past weekend has left us with no choice but to return to the picket lines,” said FSA President Teresa Place
