Following negotiations on the new collective agreement, the union signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Capilano University on May 23, 2015. In the spring of 2016, the Joint Regularisation Committee agreed on a question of interpretation of the rules of the existing agreement. The question concerned two rules: one for triggering the regularization of non-regulars and the other for the “repection” of normal part-time faculties to a higher number of regular sections. The agreement removed a “basic section limit” barrier that prevented regularization or reinforcement if, as a result, the total number of ordinary sections in the division exceeded its “base number”. The number of core sections is a number of sections that the administration cannot remove from a department without consulting the department.
