Strike at Acadia ends after faculty union, institution agree to enter binding arbitration

The strike at Acadia University has ended after the faculty union and university agreed to enter binding arbitration. The announcement was made after provincially appointed mediator William Kaplan “determined there was no realistic pathway to settlement and the mediation was terminated” since the university and faculty association were still far apart on several key issues. Picketing has ended, and students will resume their classes on March 3rd. “The university looks forward to welcoming the students back to class on Thursday and would like to thank the Acadia community for their patience during the strike,” read a statement from Acadia.
