Carleton faculty approve strike mandate

October 6, 2010

After 2 days of balloting this week, members of Carleton University's academic staff association voted 88.5% in favour of giving its bargaining team a strike mandate. The association and Carleton administration are divided on a number of issues, of which proposed changes to the tenure and promotion process are the most pressing. This is the second time in as many weeks a union at Carleton has approved a strike mandate. Members of the union representing more than 800 professional, office, and technical staff at the university voted 83% in favour of a strike. Ottawa Citizen | Maclean's OnCampus
