Universities announce updates to collective bargaining processes


Several universities have announced updates to their collective bargaining processes. The Trent University Faculty Association and Trent University’s Board of Governors have both ratified a new collective agreement that includes improvements to health and dental plans, salary increases, and commitments to advancing EDI and Indigenization. At other institutions, union members have voted in favour of a strike: the Queen’s University Faculty Association and CUPE 3912 at both Saint Mary’s University and Mount St Vincent University recently voted in favour of strikes as negotiations stall. At Memorial University, a reported impasse has occurred between the university and the Memorial University Faculty Association, and the union is “inching closer to a strike.”
