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.
