UMoncton, AEUM reach tentative deal, avert strike


The Université de Moncton has reached a tentative deal with the Association des employés de l’Université de Moncton (AEUM), the union representing the institution’s administration, maintenance staff, and trades. UMoncton and AEUM have been in negotiations since last December. Last week, UMoncton issued a statement advising its community of a likely strike; however, the two sides were able to reach an “agreement in principle” over the weekend. “This stability enables us to ensure a quality student experience, and is in line with our strategy of providing a healthy, stimulating and caring environment for the entire university community,” said UMoncton President recteur Denis Prud’homme.
