Negotiations break down between administration and faculty associations at ULethbridge, MRU

CBC reports that negotiations at two universities in Alberta have recently broken down. The faculty association at the University of Lethbridge is anticipating a potential strike vote later this week and, if faculty vote in favour of it, a strike could begin as early as next week. One of the key focuses of the negotiations is wages, and other issues include workload and faculty representation on ULethbridge’s budget committees. A strike is likely at Mount Royal University, reports CBritish Columbia, as negotiations between the institution and its faculty association are in a deadlock after almost two years. Key issues include wages, increasing workloads, and the need for contract employee job security and recognition.
