Labour lock-out at Bishop's U:

July 27, 2007

280 professors, instructors, librarians and support staff were locked out of Bishop's University, in Lennoxville Quebec, yesterday morning. 4 days of intense negotiation with a conciliator failed to yield an agreement. A major issue for the faculty union is reportedly the pension plan.  The university is determined to have an agreement in place by September.  Summer courses and ESL classes have been suspended. Maclean’s | CBC | Canada East | The Sherbrooke Record | Bishop's media release
