UBC Okanagan and its support services employees have  ratified a two-year collective agreement.

The agreement covers more than 300 employees who perform a  variety of important support services across the campus in areas  such as teaching assistance, library, facilities, housing,  administration and student services.

The employees are members of  the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which ratified  the agreement over the last week.

“I am pleased to hear that an agreement has been reached with the people who perform the many support services on campus,” said Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto.
