Capilano faculty return to work as mediated talks for staff strike continue


Teaching has resumed at Capilano University, while talks continue between the university and the MoveUP Local 378 union representing support staff. Capilano issued an update stating that the union and the university have reached a tentative collective agreement and that the return to work is currently being negotiated. Faculty who joined the strike in solidarity have returned to work. North Shore News reports that over 4,000 students have been out of the classroom since the faculty association joined the picket lines at the start of June. Capilano student Layne North said that he is glad the faculty are back, but “we’ve still missed this semester. Students don’t get the education [they] paid for.”
