College faculty get new deal

Faculty and staff at Okanagan College and seven other B.C. institutions have a tentative template agreement with the province.

The tentative deal covers financial compensation and other common agreement issues

It covers about 3,200 faculty working at eight colleges across the province.

As a result, bargaining must now be concluded on negotiable items at the local level for the eight participating colleges.

The term of the five-year template agreement is from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2019.

The tentative template provides for a 5.5 per cent wage increase over the five years of the term with potential for additional increases if the B.C. economy exceeds annual forecasts set by the Economic Forecast Council during the last four years of the agreement.
