USB faculty association votes in favour of strike


The Université de Saint-Boniface’s faculty association (APPUSB) has voted in favour of a strike. The vote comes after almost two and a half years of negotiations between the faculty association and USB; professors at the institution have been without a contract since August 2020. Earlier in June, APPUSB rejected USB’s latest pay offer, citing a gap in the two sides’ salary expectations. USB Director of Communications Nathalie Roche stated that while “there is a divergence of perspectives” between the two parties, continuing negotiations will commit “to reaching a fair and reasonable agreement.”
