STU agrees to binding arbitration

February 4, 2008

St. Thomas University is welcoming its students back to class today, thanks to an agreement to binding arbitration reached over the weekend.  The faculty association still plans vigorous negotiations over the issue of compensation -- "We don't have to give up the fight, but we can go back to the classroom." The university's winter term will be extended by 11 days, and reading week reduced to just 2 days, to help make up for class time lost during the strike, which began in late December.
