Thompson Rivers Faculty Association (TRUFA) launched a job action on Thursday morning in the form of a work-to-rule.
The action will limit faculty members contact with the Provost and Vice-President Academic’s office. This includes any telephone, email, or in-person communication.
With the work-to-rule job action in place, classes continue as normal. However, some students are finding the whole situation to be distracting.
“It’s detrimental to the students. even though they try to make it as low impact as possible, it definitely has a bad effect,” science student Kathryn Haegedorin said.
Despite hearing rumblings of a strike happening on campus, Haegedorin isn't so sure one will happen.
“I’m not too worried because this is a really young institution and I don’t think they’re willing to take it that far. It won’t be good for their reputation,” she said.
Engineering student Cody Bird agrees with Haegedorin.
“I’m not too worried about what’s going to happen to us because I don’t think they would actually go and strike and close down classes,” said Bird. “Its people’s careers and life.”
The mediation session still scheduled to begin on Friday and to continue throughout the weekend.
