Carleton denies plans to lockout faculty

May 10, 2018

In light of a recent message from the Carleton University Academic Staff Association, Carleton University states that the university does not plan to lock out faculty. The Ottawa Citizen, the CUASA has accused Carleton of trying to rush a deal, stating that “based on the employer’s behaviour, your team has reason to believe that the employer is preparing for an unnecessary lock out.” The university claims that it sought conciliation to bring the current round of bargaining to an end, and remains committed to resuming talks as soon as possible. “Raising the possibility of a lockout, when none is planned, increases tensions unnecessarily,” the Carleton release states.
