More than 1,000 unionized faculty members at Camosun College and four other B.C. colleges have reached five-year tentative agreements with the province.

The deal means faculty will see larger pay increases if the provincial government exceeds its economic growth forecasts, said Finance Minister Mike de Jong.

“These five tentative agreements are significant in that they are the

first to be reached in the post-secondary sector under the province’s Economic Stability Mandate,” de Jong said in a statement.

Faculty at Camosun, Northern Lights, Northwest Community, Okanagan and Selkirk colleges are affected by the tentative contract, which would run until March 2019.

Details will be announced when the contract is ratified by BCGEU members.

There are nearly 72,000 public-sector employees covered by tentative and ratified agreements negotiated under the Economic Stability Mandate so far.
