Tentative agreement reached between MtA, MAFA

February 11, 2020

After a six-day strike, a tentative agreement has been reached between Mount Allison University and the MtA Faculty Association. MtA Faculty and Librarians returned to campus on Monday allowing classes to resume. In a statement, MAFA indicated that it will share the details of the agreement with members in advance of a ratification vote, but no details of the agreement will be released to the public until then. Some of the key issues for faculty staff and librarians during negotiations included accommodations for those with disabilities, job security, and compensation, according to MAFA President Matthew Litva. “This was a challenging round of negotiations, but our striking members stayed strong and united in their determination to achieve a settlement at the bargaining table,” said Litvak.
