CBUFA begins strike


Cape Breton University Faculty Association (CBUFA) members went on strike on Friday. CTV News reports that wages are a key issue for CBUFA members: Cape Breton University has reportedly offered members an 8% increase over three years, but members are asking for a 14% increase over two years. International students at the university shared with CTV that they are anxious about the strike impacting their studies. “We are just pressing both sides to come together to reach an agreement,” said CBU Student Union President Damanpreet Singh.
