UOITFA requests “no-board” notice to enable countdown toward potential strike

January 19, 2022
UOITFA, the faculty association at Ontario Tech University, has requested a “no-board” notice from the Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development which will enable it to begin the countdown toward a potential strike. UUOITFA says that the concerns around workload, education quality, equity, and job security has not been meaningfully addressed by the Ontario Tech administration. “Our priority has always been to try and settle these issues at the bargaining table and avoid a strike,” said Past UOITFA President Kimberly Nugent. “However, if a strike is the only way to convince President Murphy and the Board of Governors that they need to take action, then we are willing to strike.” Other unions in ON, including CFS Ontario, CUASA, and CUPE 3902, issued statements of solidarity.
