BCIT’s picket lines on November 17.

The BCIT Faculty Staff Association (FSA) is engaging in a full strike today (Monday. November 17, 2012) and will be picketing at all campuses from 6am to 8pm.

This action will be carried out in cooperation with the BCGEU’s support staff bargaining unit. All FSA members are instructed to withdraw their services to BCIT tomorrow. Keep checking The Link website and social media (Facebook: The Link (BCIT) and Twitter: @BCIT_Link).[hr]

Neetu was born and raised in the Okanagan Valley (minus the few toddler years she spent living in Punjab, India where her line of heritage is from). She moved to the lower mainland to attend BCIT and is now in her graduating year of the Broadcast and Online Journalism Program. Her writing and editing for Link magazine often happens late at night because when she's not at school she works as a reporter and anchor for CKNW Newstalk 980 and is also involved in the start up of a charity called the Beautiful World Foundation. She loves to travel and feels fortunate to be in a field where she can share the stories of interesting and inspiring people from around the world.
