Faculty at the University of Guelph have voted to authorize a strike if one becomes necessary, with 89 per cent voting in favor of the strike mandate.
UGFA called the strike vote to secure gains already made at the bargaining table and to provide momentum to reach a fair settlement with the employer. UGFA had two days of conciliation this week, and the positive vote result indicates strong support for the association’s bargaining team going forward.
UGFA negotiators have already achieved provisions that will protect job security and address workload issues. All of the remaining issues are monetary.
