CBU faculty vote in favour of labour action as talks continue

August 9, 2016

Members of the Cape Breton University Faculty Association who participated in a strike vote have reportedly voted 90% in favour of a strike. The CBUFA said the vote was spurred by a lack of progress after a month of negotiations between it and CBU’s board of governors. According to an Association news release, the main issues under discussion relate to workload, job security, and “what CBUFA considers the future vision and academic integrity of the university.” CBUFA filed for conciliation on Friday.
