UWOFA, WLUFA vote in favour of strike mandates

October 19, 2022
Members of both the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) and Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty Association’s (WLUFA) part-time unit have voted in favour of strike mandates. UWOFA members voted 91% in favour of a strike mandate, with key issues including equitable workloads, enhanced health and wellness, and improved job security for contract faculty. WLUFA contract faculty members voted 95% in favour of authorizing a call for strike action in the event of an impasse. Key issues include job security, compensations, and benefits for precariously employed faculty. Teaching assistants at Dalhousie University could go on strike as of today. Dal teaching assistants have reportedly not had a collective agreement for two years and have not received a raise since 2019. OCUFA (UWOFA, WLUFA) | CBC (ON | NS)
