Western teaching assistants return to picket lines as negotiations stall

Western University teaching assistants have returned to the picket lines after negotiations with the university reportedly stalled over the weekend. In a news release, Western stated that the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Local 610 (PSAC 610) rejected the university’s latest offer and walked away from negotiations. The university added that it is doing “all that it can to reach an agreement that is fair and equitable” and that it remains “committed to achieving a mutually agreeable contract.” PSAC 610 President Pardis Baha said that the union will return to the bargaining table when Western is “ready to take our concern seriously.”
