Statement on BC NDP and Green Party Agreement
On behalf of 10,000 FPSE members, we want to congratulate John Horgan and Andrew Weaver on reaching their historic governing agreement, putting British Columbians ahead of partisan interests.
We are hopeful that this agreement will be transformative for BC, and that its spirit of compromise serve as a democratizing force encouraging cooperative and consultative governance far beyond the next four years.
We look forward to the opportunity to consult with a new government to discuss post-secondary education policy priorities, including a comprehensive review of the funding formula, tuition-free ABE and ESL programs, and student debt relief.
There is a great deal of work to be done in the coming weeks, months, and years, and we’re looking forward to being part of it.
The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC is the provincial voice for faculty and staff in BC teaching universities, colleges and institutes, and in private sector institutions. FPSE member locals, represented by Presidents' Council and the Executive, represent over 10,000 faculty and staff at 18 public and 12 private sector institutions.
