A new collective agreement for faculty at Northern Lights College has been ratified, the province announced Thursday.
The agreement between the college and BCGEU Local 710 runs from April 2019 to March 2022, and includes yearly wage increase of 2%.
It also includes a provision to establish a centre of excellence for teaching and learning, the province said. The centre aims to strengthen teaching practices through peer-mentoring, workshops and seminars, and increase learning supports for students.
The agreement covers 199 workers, and has been ratified by the union, the college, and thePost-Secondary Employers' Association board, the province said.
