Members of the Laurentian University Faculty Association (LUFA) in Sudbury have been working hard to negotiate a fair collective agreement with the university administration. Despite several days in mediation, the parties are approaching an impasse and a strike may be imminent.
LUFA is asking the administration to come to the table and agree to a fair settlement that:
- re-invests in research and the classroom, including a fair faculty workload;
- increases the openness and transparency with which the university operates; and
- protects and promotes the positive, enriching learning environments Laurentian students expect.
To put pressure on the university administration to agree to a fair deal and avoid a strike, LUFA is asking supporters to send a letter to Laurentian University’s President, Vice-President, and Board Chair expressing support for Laurentian’s hardworking faculty.
