Union Says UNB Can't Compete When Trying To Attract New Faculty

90 per cent of the UNB teacher's union voting for a strike and one professor says that number indicates how unhappy they are.

Associate History Professor Deborah Lindsay tells CHSJ News there is a sentiment that they are considered a liability more than an investment.

Lindsay says that is demonstrated by the offer that the management team has put on the table.

She adds they have tried to tell management that they need to attract new faculty and currently they can't compete in terms of what they can offer them in terms of salary and start-up costs for labs.

A picket line is set up at the entrance to the Tucker Park campus and those walking the line are getting supportive honks from drivers going by.
