Members of the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) and Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty Association (WLUFA) part-time unit have given their bargaining teams resounding strike mandates. UWOFA members voted 91 per cent in favour and WLUFA contract faculty voted 95.4 per cent in favour of authorizing their respective bargaining and Executive teams to call for strike action if negotiations at the universities reach an impasse.

UWOFA has been bargaining since the summer and is now in conciliation trying to reach a fair deal that rewards and recognizes faculty effort, provides equitable workloads, enhanced health and wellness, and improves job security for contract faculty. The WLUFA team is seeking to improve job security, compensation, and benefits for precariously employed faculty this round.
