Tentative agreement at University of Sudbury

August 28, 2008

From the CAUT newsletter:

(August 27, 2008) Striking academic staff at the University of Sudbury reached a tentative agreement at 4 pm Tuesday August 26. Represented by LUFA, academic staff have been on strike for over a week, seeking salary and teaching load improvements. LUFA president Jim Ketchen, speaking on behalf of the members, announced that “LUFA is happy that the bargaining team has a tentative agreement that they can recommend for ratification before the beginning of the coming term.” The strike began when the employer unilaterally revoked the terms of the recently expired collective agreement and sought to negotiate individual contracts with the unionized members. LUFA is translating the terms of the settlement into French (the University of Sudbury is bilingual, offering programs in French and English), and a ratification vote is scheduled for the weekend of August 30-31.

Congratulations to our colleagues in Sudbury!
