In May, 2015, the university and Faculty Association ratified their first collective agreement. The agreement, effective from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2019, was negotiated within the BC government's economic stability mandate providing for a government-funded 5.5 per cent increase over the length of the contract. In addition, net zero trade-offs and efficiencies enabled the inclusion of a differentiated salary adjustment of 1.44 per cent in each of two years and a three-year lift to the Career Progress Increment.
