MRU faculty vote to ratify new collective agreement

February 24, 2022
Faculty at Mount Royal University have voted to ratify a new collective agreement after almost two years of contract negotiations. The agreement includes salary and benefits increases of 3.25%, which mitigates the impact of inflation and retroactively covers July 2020 to June 2024. “There was a sense of relief among many faculty, and certainly among students, that we had found a way to reach a new collective agreement with the university,” said Mount Royal Faculty Association president Lee Easton. “You can’t always get everything that you hoped for. But in this case, I think we saw an important move to address an important issue for contract faculty.” CBC (AB)
