Carleton prepares for back-to-school strike

August 17, 2007

As the new school year approaches, word of another possible university strike is in the air. Carleton University's professional, office, technical and support staff will be in a legal strike or lockout position as of September 5th, says CUPE, because the university has failed to make a "fair" settlement offer during conciliation talks. Key issues include wages, benefits, postings and employment security. Mediation talks are scheduled for August 30, and September 3-4.  CUPE News Release
