September 20, 2013

The Support Staff University of Ottawa (PSUO-SSUO), made up of uOttawa’s administrative and support staff, have voted 79% in favour of a strike mandate, according to the Ottawa Citizen. uOttawa and the PSUO-SSUO, which is part of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation, failed to come to an agreement in August during negotiations. However, both sides have said they are looking forward to "getting back to the table.” uOttawa and its faculty association recently reached a 4-year collective agreement to avoid a strike. Ottawa Citizen
