NSCADU faculty take to picket line

March 4, 2019

Faculty and librarians at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University are on strike, reports CBC. The faculty union says that workload, wages, and job security are the key sticking points, but NSCADU President Dianne Taylor-Gearing told CBC that the school cannot make any concessions that might jeopardize its fiscal situation. NSCADU student union president Kassidy Bernard said that her group plans to join the picketing workers, and encouraged students not to  cross the picket line if possible. CBC adds that the union’s contract expired in June 2018, and that the two sides have met 18 times to try and strike a deal. CBC (1) | CBC (2)
