Conciliation board woes
1. Members were concerned that the conciliation board process serves only to disrupt free collective bargaining;
2. The conciliation board report failed to provide specific recommendations for some important outstanding issues;
3. Issues of great importance for the part-time unit were ignored in the report, which recommended an increase that would bring part-time members to a salary of $26,753 for the equivalent of full-time work, with virtually no benefits.
4. The report’s recommended salary offer would see Mount Allison’s salaries fall further behind those of other New Brunswick universities.
