UBCFA Rejects Offer

The University tabled an across-the-board (ATB) offer of 1.95% and 1.90%. The Faculty Association rejected this offer, saying that it would simply not allow catch up with settlements at major comparator universities, principally the University of Toronto, but would in fact result in faculty salaries at UBC falling further behind.  A counter offer was made, which the University rejected.

The parties will meet again during the week of February 4th for mediated negotiations, which will culminate with an arbitrator ruling on outstanding issues, if any.
