ULethbridge cancels application to delay strike action, progress made at bargaining table

The University of Lethbridge has cancelled an “urgent interim application” that would delay strike action as faculty and administration make progress in bargaining. The application to delay strike action was reportedly made so that the labour relations board could deal with a “bad faith” bargaining complaint that was filed last week against the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association (ULFA). “The university withdrew an application before the [labour relations board] in recognition of progress made at the bargaining table with the ULFA yesterday,” read a statement from ULethbridge. ULFA President Dan O’Donnell confirmed that the negotiations were proceeding. “I think where it really counts, at the table, the teams are meeting, they seem to be talking reasonably well,” said O’Donnell.
