Bcit Fsa Collective Agreement 2020

Contractual agreements between BCIT and FSA are included in a collective agreement and a number of agreements known as “memorandums of understanding,” also known as Memags or CA Memags collective agreements. The process of preparing the latest version of the collective agreement for printing has been painfully slow. Despite the time spent between collective agreements, the employer refused to make most of the changes requested as part of the proofing process. If the new collective agreement is finally published, then it will always contain an inconsistent use of terms, ambiguous references and other minor issues that we hope to resolve. In March, we proposed to the employer that only three errors in the collective agreement be corrected before the pressure was put. We have to hear. We intend to close the pressure of the 2010-14 agreement at the beginning of negotiations for its renewal. In this case, printed copies of the current agreement will be available before the summer. In the meantime, they refer to the 2007-10 collective agreement and the 2010-14 transaction agreement.

In April, BCGEU professional teachers at colleges (not BCIT or Vancouver University) agreed on the first collective agreement in our sector during this round of negotiations. This agreement is a five-year contract with total wage increases of 5.5%, but no increase until April 2015. Minor adjustments have been made to extended health care and funding has increased slightly, but few other changes have been made. In recent years, the FSA has taken steps to change our previous agreement practices, including fewer agreements. Another aspect of this new approach is the publication of more CA Memags on our website than before. At BCIT`s request and because some agreements require it, the FSA will seek BCIT`s approval for the publication of CA Memags, which has never been published before. We also plan to publish CA Memags with comments to make its terms useful to members. If you have any questions about any of these Memags CA, please contact the FSA. On May 27, 2020, your negotiating team reached a preliminary agreement with BCIT.

In accordance with the negotiation process, this interim agreement was submitted for ratification by the FSA. The negotiating team recommended voting “yes” to ratify the agreement. The vote took place from 3 to 8 June 2020 and on 8 June we announced that the agreement had been ratified by the FSA. The FSA conducted two interviews with its faculty members without being regularly taught about alternatives to the concept of “non-teaching faculty” used throughout the collective agreement.
