The Camosun College Faculty Association is certified as the legal bargaining unit for the majority of faculty at Camosun College. Thus, we are a union under the jurisdiction of the Labour Relations Code [RSBC 1996] Chapter 244. Among our chief responsibilities are to negotiate a collective agreement with our employer and to administer that agreement. As a union in the BC College system, we are also a member of FPSE. The collective agreement is a legally binding, written contract between us and the employer that sets out our pay scale and working conditions of employment. Negotiation of this agreement is the responsibility of the Contract Negotiating Committee (CNC). Administering and monitoring this agreement is the responsibility of the Contract Management Committee (CMC). In addition to its functions of negotiating and contract administration, the Faculty Association administers the Professional Development Fund through the Professional Development (PD) Committee, and serves as the clearing house for a wide range of information from Administration, from the Federation of Post Secondary Educators (FPSE), or from other institutions.
