CBU Faculty Sets Strike Date
The Faculty Association at Cape Breton University has set a strike date of a week from today.
The move comes after contract talks with a conciliator failed.
However, the union says there’s still hope a deal will be reached at the negotiating table during last-ditch efforts.
The union says the main outstanding issues include job security and wages.
The university is offering a two per cent increase a year over a three-year period plus a $1,500 signing bonus.
The Faculty Association is looking for a total increase of 17.4 per cent over the next two years.
