URFA calls for additional funding for URegina after discontinuation of positions


The University of Regina Faculty Association (URFA) is calling for the Government of Saskatchewan to provide the University of Regina with emergency funding after positions were discontinued due to budget constraints. CBC reports that URegina has undergone “workforce adjustments,” which include layoffs and the non-extension of some short-term contracts. URFA President Britt Hall said that the union knows of seven positions that have been lost and says that these lost positions will impact staff workload. CBC reports that SK Advanced Education Minister Gordon Wyant said that the university did not ask for additional funding in this year’s budget.
