We are available to discuss your needs anytime! If you have questions or concerns about your compensation, contractual obligations, or general challenges related to your employment, please get in touch with the Labour Relations Officer right away.
The BVCFA holds annual elections. Every spring, we send out a nomination request by email to our membership base. However, we may need to fill some vacant spots during the year.
To express your interest and discuss current opportunities, please connect with us by completing this contact form or click here to visit our current Executive Team and learn more about possible vacant positions.
We welcome any interest in the Faculty Association!
We recommend that all faculty check their pay rate at least once per year to ensure their compensation is reflective of their experience and credentials. Faculty can find information on rates of pay in the following sections of the Collective Agreement:
Section 38 Casual Employees – Rates of Pay
Section 39 Continuous and Temporary Employees – Rates of Pay
Section 19 of our Collective Agreement outlines the grievance procedures. Reminder: To file a grievance, you have 10 days from the date upon which the act causing the grievance occurred. Or, you have 10 days from when you could have reasonably known the act occurred.
A grievance is a difference arising out of the interpretation, application, operation, or any contravention or alleged contravention of the Collective Agreement or as to whether any such difference can be the subject of arbitration.
Grievances are filed when the employer has violated or breached the Collective Agreement. Contact the Labour Relations Officer immediately if you believe there are grounds for filing a grievance.
If HR is present, we strongly recommend that you have faculty representation. Faculty Members are entitled to faculty representation in meetings that could lead to disciplinary conversations or conversations that breach the Collective Agreement. Regular operational discussions with your supervisor do not require representation.
