LFA is now a certified Living Wage Employer

living wage employer

We're happy to announce that the Langara Faculty Association has become a certified Living Wage Employer. The living wage is the hourly rate that a family needs to cover basic expenses, calculated regionally and updated annually.

The LFA is joining the ranks of over 140 living wage employers across BC, the province with the highest rate of working poverty in Canada. For more information, see the Living Wage for Families Campaign website.


LFA Bargaining Meeting

The LFA Board has called a general membership meeting to discuss the results of our bargaining survey, to update you about the bargaining context and to ratify our bargaining demands.

The meeting is scheduled for:

Thursday, January 10th, 2019
4:45-6:20pm in T530

The meeting could end before 6:20pm, but that will depend on the amount of discussion. If you are not able to join exactly at 4:45pm, that’s okay, please come when you can. Also, please help by encouraging your colleagues to attend the meeting.
