UMFA extends strike deadline by 24 hours

November 17, 2020
The University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) has extended their strike deadline by 24 hours, delaying a potential strike. The strike deadline was originally Saturday, but UMFA will continue mediation with university administration for an additional 24 hours to negotiate faculty wages for the 2020-21 school year. According to CBC, this extension means that the earliest a strike could occur would be this morning. CBC (MB)
