No end in sight for strike at USainte-Anne

CBC reports that after five weeks of negotiations there is no clear end in sight for the strike at Université Sainte-Anne. The university has reportedly declined binding arbitration, which both the union and the Canadian Association of University Teachers have called for. CBC reports that the university accepted Nova Scotia’s chief conciliator’s proposal of creating a three-person conciliation board that would settle outstanding articles, but the union rejected this suggestion. Students and faculty have voiced concerns about the impact that the strike, if extended, will have on students’ ability to finish the semester and begin their spring courses or summer jobs.
