Laurentian, faculty ratify new agreement

October 12, 2017

After a brief strike, full-time and sessional professors at Laurentian University have ratified a new agreement with the institution. The labour dispute ended late last week after the Laurentian University Faculty Association and the university reached a new three-year agreement. Professors ratified the deal on Friday, while the board of governors unanimously approved it on Tuesday. Laurentian Interim President Pierre Zundel notes that the two main sticking points in the negotiations centred on pensions and workload, both of which were areas where the school and faculty were ultimately able to find common ground. CBC
