UPEI, UPEIFA reach tentative agreement


The University of Prince Edward Island and the UPEI Faculty Association (UPEI FA) reached a tentative Collective Agreement on Friday. CTV News reports that faculty members took to the picket line on March 20th after months of failed negotiations, and UPEI and UPEIFA met earlier this month with a mediator. “Once the agreement is ratified, this means that the UPEI FA strike will end, faculty will return to work, and classes will resume on Monday, April 17, 2023, subject to approval by the university Senate,” stated UPEI in a release. The senate held an emergency meeting to finalize a return-to-class plan.
