Vancouver Community College and the Vancouver Community College Faculty Association reached a tentative agreement on April 9, 2015 under the Province’s Economic Stability Mandate. The nearly 10 months of talks were characterized by respectful and open communications.
This tentative agreement covers more than approximately 865 faculty who deliver trades, health sciences, design, academic upgrading, university transfer, and ESL instruction at the college.
The tentative settlement is for a five-year term beginning April 1, 2014. It includes a 5.5 per cent wage increase over the five years with potential for additional increases if the B.C. economy exceeds the annual forecasts set by the Economic Forecast Council during the last four years of the agreement.
The College Human Resources Committee of the Board of Governors will consider the tentative settlement on April 22, 2015 and the VCC Faculty Association membership will consider it on April 23, 2015.
