NAIT academic staff file grievance over program suspension proposal

April 26, 2010

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's academic staff association has voted to file a grievance against the school's president and his executive team over the proposal to suspend 13 programs, which was later rejected by NAIT's academic council and referred to a joint staff, student, and administration committee. The association's president says the lack of consultation cause a major crack in a relationship that had been co-operative for years. "We have just lost so much trust and belief between us and the main office." The association wants a promise that such big decisions will not be sprung on them again. Edmonton Journal
