college and faculty sign agreement

The Lethbridge Community College Board of Governors and the LCC Faculty Association sign a new two-year agreement of principles.

The Lethbridge Community College Board of Governors and the LCC Faculty Association have signed a new agreement in principle, which sets the direction for the collective agreement for the next two years.

The new agreement includes a 3.5 percent cost-of-living allowance in the first year followed by a 3.0 percent increase in the second year of the agreement. The agreement also will reflect changes to the pay grid in order that the College can regain a competitive position with other colleges in Alberta. It also restructures the College’s professional development funding and increases insurance coverage for Association members and their families.

A major adjustment to the current agreement is the process of converting approximately 30 adjunct positions to full-time faculty. This recognizes the College’s commitment to compensating faculty for full-time work.

“This agreement reflects a new era in negotiations with our faculty,” said Vice-president of Corporate Services Rick Buis. “We are pleased to have resolved the major points of the agreement so quickly and to the benefit of both parties. In my view, this represents a landmark in collective agreements within the province. I applaud the College and Faculty Association’s negotiating committees for their hard work in finalizing this agreement.”

“We are very pleased that the LCC Board of Governors and the executive team looked at the compensation package for the faculty,” says Dr. Roland Maw, of the Faculty Association’s negotiating committee. We’ve come through some difficult times due to the mandated salary rollback, but this agreement will restore us to parity with other institutions. We should be able to attract and retain individuals that will ensure the academic health of LCC.”

The negotiating principles of the collective agreement was ratified at a recent vote of the Faculty Association and by the College Board of Governors.
