Faculty at Laurier ask for a no-Board; Settlement ratified at Huron

| Comment

After five unsuccessful conciliation sessions, the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty Association (WLUFA) requested a no-Board report on February 9, 2012. The parties remain apart on a number of key issues, including compensation and pensions, and continue to work on several key non-monetary issues such as professional teaching positions. The Executive of WLUFA has been authorized to call a strike if necessary, with 91% of members voting in favour of the motion. WLUFA will meet with conciliator Greg Long again on Thursday and Friday of next week.
