January 18, 2022
The Concordia University of Edmonton Faculty Association (CUEFA) and Concordia University of Edmonton strike ended on Saturday. A four-year deal was ratified by 89% of CUEFA membership, and included improvements in areas such as salary, workload, and research opportunities. Virtual classes will begin on Wednesday, and both CUEFA and Concordia Edmonton will be working together to mitigate any impacts on students. “This new agreement is a win for faculty, students and the community,” said CUEFA President Glynis Price. “It will enable the university to recruit and retain excellent faculty and lays the foundation for a stronger learning environment.” CBC | CTV News (AB)
