URegina braces for potential strike at end of semester

March 19, 2019

A potential strike by the University of Regina Faculty association has students and faculty concerned about the end of the semester. According to CBC, the URFA has a strike mandate with job action possible after March 28th, while final exams begin on April 15th. The URegina Students Union is calling on the school’s administration and faculty association to consider the impact that job action could have on students, noting that a “strike or lockout will jeopardize the future education of several students,” including international students whose study permits are set to expire on May 1st. URegina administration and the faculty association are set to resume talks on March 25th and 26th with a mediator, CBC adds. Global News | CBC (SK)
