UPEIFA members go on strike


The University of Prince Edward Island Faculty Association (UPEIFA) is on strike after the deadline passed to create a new collective agreement. CAUT says that the latest offer given to UPEIFA did not address the union’s key issues related to staff working conditions and student learning conditions. These issues included workload, health and safety, pay, and increased numbers of full-time faculty. The University of Prince Edward Island said in a release that it did not receive responses or counter offers to its recent proposals.
