Simon Fraser University Key Developments
Simon Fraser University and Jilin University Open Bioarcheology Research Centre
Nov 18 13
Simon Fraser University announced the launch of a new joint research centre on bioarchaeology with Jilin University (JLU). Led by SFU professor Dongya Yang, the Joint Centre for Bioarchaeological Research (JCBR) will provide faculty, scholars and students the opportunity to advance studies in both Canada and China. This joint research centre will create an effective platform for faculty and students from both SFU and JLU to conduct collaborative research in archaeology, and to gain overseas research experience in both China and Canada. While SFU will begin receiving JLU's visiting archaeology faculty and graduate students in January of 2014, this is not the first partnership between the two institutions.

Simon Fraser University Rejects Chance to Settle with Striking Support Workers
Nov 29 12
A CUPE-initiated mediation aimed at getting a collective agreement for Simon Fraser University's 1,000 CUPE support workers fell apart in less than an hour on November 29, 2012. The meeting with mediator Vince Ready ended when SFU again refused to bargain in good faith with CUPE 3338. This despite SFU recently reaching a new collective agreement with its teaching assistants. At issue is the university linking its pension plan problems to collective bargaining. The SFU administration clings to the position that CUPE must somehow fix the ailing SFU Pension Plan ($64.5 million in the hole at last count) before it is willing to negotiate a collective agreement with its CUPE employees. The Pension Plan is a multi-party plan that can only be changed by all the players, including ASPA, Poly Party, CUPE and SFU. CUPE has repeatedly assured SFU that it will do everything it can to help the university out of its pension crisis - but only after collective bargaining has concluded and only with the other pension plan participants. The CUPE support workers have been without a contract for 2 1/2 years and are the only CUPE university workers in the province without a new collective agreement. Every other university negotiated no-concessions, four-year deal with modest two-per-cent wage increases in each of the final two years. All those agreements have now been ratified.
