VANCOUVER, April 8, 2014 /CNW/ - "The members have spoken and the
message is very clear," said Karen McCullough, President of the
Education and Training Employees Association (ETEA) Local 1. "Our
members are determined to get a fair contract in this round of
negotiations with ILSC administrators. We've been at the bargaining
table for several weeks and still face substantial concession demands
from management. ILSC can well afford a fair contract with faculty and
this strike vote result is a wake-up call to our employer that we are
serious about getting a fair settlement in 2014," McCullough added.
ETEA Local 1 represents over 100 faculty who work and teach at ILSC's
five campuses located in the Lower Mainland.
