Acadia students to receive compensation after four-week strike

April 19, 2022
Students at Acadia University will be receiving compensation for the four-week faculty member strike. Payments of $600 for full-time domestic students and $700 for full-time international students will be applied to student accounts. The compensation stems from a proposal made by the Acadia Students’ Union (ASU) and ensures that any potential savings made by the institution went back to the students. “Throughout the course of the strike, students made it very clear that some form of financial compensation acknowledging the impacts of the strike was among their top priorities,” said ASU executive member Megan Cyr. CTV News reports that a payment provided after a strike in 2007 set a clear precedent for the circumstances in 2022. CTV News | CBC (NS)
