Faculty at Acadia University have threatened to walk off the job, setting a strike deadline of Monday, November 27th.
The Acadia University Faculty Association has been negotiating with the school's board of governors since late March, but talks reached an impasse in June.
In a news release, AUFA president Stephen Ahern said during a conciliation talks last week, the board failed to address proposals including restoring full-time positions, pay equity, increases in salary and fundraising for a campus child-care centre.
"We’re disappointed that the board’s refusal to negotiate has led to this point, but we are committed to fighting for a contract that recognizes that Acadia University cannot be the extraordinary university it advertises to students and parents without investing in its faculty," said Ahern.
AUFA represents 331 full-time and part-time professors, librarians, archivists, and instructors.
