With support from the LFA, on August 12 the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC (FPSE) sent a letter to the Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training (AEST) expressing concerns about safe fall return to campus. In particular, FPSE expressed concerns about the one-size-fits-all approach outlined in the COVID-19 Return to Campus Guidelines issued by AEST on July 5, which limits the ability of post-secondary institutions to provide safe working and learning environments.
With 19 member locals, FPSE is a federation of independent unions representing over 10,000 faculty and staff at colleges and teaching universities across BC. The LFA is local 14 of FPSE.
Pauline Greaves Aylward, LFA President, on behalf of the LFA Board.
