Affected parties in ULethbridge faculty strike express concern, hopes of returning to bargaining table

As the faculty strike at the University of Lethbridge continues, the affected parties have spoken to the media to express their concern and hopes for the process. ULethbridge has reportedly stated that it cannot offer the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association (ULFA) a higher raise due to budget constraints, and says that it has been calling to meet with ULFA since February 15th. ULFA has filed an unfair labour practice complaint against ULethbridge, saying that the university has not engaged in “genuine and productive bargaining” and has gone through five chief negotiators. Students have called for the parties to return to the bargaining table and are staging a sit-in protest outside the institution’s administrative offices. “Lots of students take this semester to apply to grad school or scholarships and awards, so this puts a lot of uncertainty among students,” said student union president Holly Kletke.
