ULaval faculty members end strike


Faculty at the Université de Laval have voted to end their strike. Syndicat des professeurs de l’Université Laval (SPUL) members voted 92.6% in favour of ending the strike; SPUL said that “the members felt that the gains obtained at the bargaining table were sufficient” to end the strike if ULaval’s board of directors ratifies the agreement. The conciliator’s proposal included a salary increase of 15% by 2026, the hiring of 80-90 new teachers by 2026, and changes to academic freedom. Professors returned to work yesterday and most classes will resume on Monday.
