The Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association is tackling a number of major labour relations items with senior administration in efforts to improve its relationship.
President Tom Friedman says some of the big issues to resolve are tenure, and promotion procedures.
“We are always making sure that the process by which people apply and are considered for both tenure and promotion, are appropriate, and that’s a work in progress. You know, we only became a university in 2005, so we are still working on procedures that are going to be transparent and are going to be appropriate.”
Friedman says TRUFA is trying to improve its relationship with TRU, and a vote of non confidence in senior administration a few years ago.
