The FSA is affiliated with the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators (FPSE), a province-wide umbrella organization of colleges and institutes. FPSE is governed by a Presidents’ Council composed of all local association presidents who act under the guidance of the Federation’s AGM. The Federation assists us with bargaining, maintains a strike fund, provides expert and legal advice, facilitates the exchange of information between the local associations, and lobbies the provincial government on our behalf.
Through FPSE we are also affiliated with the BC Federation of Labour (BC Fed) and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) through participation in the National Union of Canadian Association University Teachers (NUCAUT). The latter includes those unionized faculty associations participating in the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT).
Our affiliation with the Fraser Valley Labour Council (FVLC) connects us to other unions in our immediate community.
