Thompson Rivers University faculty launches job action
The union representing 650 members says the limited job action won't impact students or classes
The Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association will begin limited job action today.
The union says the job action won't impact classes and students but it will involve limiting communication and contact between faculty and the provost and vice-president academic's office.
TRU Faculty Association says senior administrators have failed to respect academic governance, acknowledge program needs and among other things, foster an environment of mutual trust and sincerity in collective bargaining.
The current collective agreement for the faculty members expired in March 2014 and the parties have been in negotiations since February 2015.
Mediator Mark Brown was appointed in the dispute this week and mediation is set to begin tomorrow.
The Faculty Association represents approximately 650 instructors, librarians, counsellors, educational coordinators and learning specialists.
Students in Kamloops and Williams Lake can find the latest updates at the university's website.
