uRegina students want a share of strike savings

December 8, 2007

uRegina students want a refund for services that were not received during a recent staff strike on campus. The university has offered students an extension of their recreation memberships into May and June, and $20,000 for the student union to fund recreation-related projects. Students are seeking a refund of some tuition as well as recreation fees, and argue that the university saved up to $75,000 per day in unpaid wages. The university administration denies that savings can be calculated so neatly. A third party has been called in to determine exactly how much money was saved.
