Round 2 of Coordinated Bargaining began, now with the BCGEU. As pressure rose with short two-day rotating strikes, the government brought the eight locals, BCGEU instructors, their employers, and PSEA together for multi-institutional discussions on system-wide issues. James Dorsey was appointed to facilitate. The result was the Framework Agreement with system approaches to the following issues: contract training; contracting out; information technology; a registry for laid off faculty; labour adjustment and a fund; human resource database; a joint dispute resolution committee (JADRC); a common salary scale, and a common expiry date.
