UNB Faculty Set Strike Deadline

This could have a major effect on students and staff alike...... the Association of University of New Brunswick Teachers has voted to set a strike deadline of January 13th.

If it goes ahead, the strike would be a first for UNB--there's never been a faculty strike at the school in its 230 year history.

It would effect more than 800 full time and part time staff.

The key issues are compensation and working conditions comparable to other similarly-sized universities according to the Teacher's Association.

The association is working to arrange a general membership meeting for Thursday after which more details could come out.
