Brescia faculty reach tentative agreement

The Brescia Faculty Association (BFA) has reached a tentative agreement with their employer. The following statement was posted on the BFA website:
 
The Brescia Faculty Association reached a tentative agreement with the Employer on September 28, 2016 after a day and a half of Conciliation.  The BFA began negotiating to renew our first collective agreement in late April and held a strike mandate vote with members voting 94% in favour on September 7.  Wage and work parity with smaller school comparators was an important priority in this round of bargaining.  The entire association is very grateful for the support it received during the letter campaign.
 
The BFA will hold a ratification meeting on October 4 and the agreement will be presented to the Board of Trustees for their approval on October 12.
 
The letter campaign, launched with technical assistance from OCUFA, was signed by 550 individuals and faculty associations across Ontario and Canada, a huge demonstration of support and solidarity.
