Carleton, Brock reach tentative deals with TAs, contract faculty

March 7, 2017

A strike action by contract faculty and teaching assistants at Carleton University only lasted an hour before a tentative deal was reached yesterday, reports CBC. CUPE 4600, which represents about 1,800 teaching assistants and 1,000 contract instructors, reportedly pursued the strike action due to concerns about salaries and job security. A Carleton release states that classes have resumed and the school is operating as usual. The St Catharines Standard reports that Brock University has also reached a tentative deal with its contract faculty and teaching assistants after two full days of negotiations working with a provincially appointed mediator.
