Tentative OC deal

Okanagan College and the Okanagan College Faculty Association have reached a tentative agreement.

Okanagan College and the Okanagan College Faculty Association, representing about 255 professors, have reached a tentative agreement.

The tentative settlement is for a five-year term beginning April 1, 2014. It includes a 5.5 per cent wage increase over the five years with potential for additional increases if the B.C. economy exceeds the annual forecasts set by the Economic Forecast Council during the last four years of the agreement.

Dates for the college board of governors and the faculty association to consider the tentative settlement have yet to be determined.
