The UBC Faculty Association remembers Professor Daniel Vickers (History), a respected scholar and admired teacher. The Association is grateful for his participation and contribution to our work. Danny has been memorialized in this article by Jerry Bannister. He will be missed.
Negotiations between UBC and UBCFA to renew the Collective Agreement that expired on June 30, 2016 began yesterday. Both parties presented all of their proposals.
The University and the Association have started to table specific language. At our next meeting, on February 9, both parties aim to table specific language on all proposals.
