MEMBER UPDATE; February 7, 2013 re: contract talks


February 7, 2013

As we enter the 11th day of our strike for a fair contract, the StFXAUT negotiating team is preparing to meet with university administrators again this morning at 11 for more contract talks. The two sides are still discussing the counter proposals presented by the union at yesterday’s meeting.

The strong show of support we’ve received locally and across the country from students, alumni, and other faculty associations who face the same culture of entitlement in their universities, is a great help to our negotiating team at the table,” said Peter McInnis, president of the StFXAUT. “It is because of that pressure that we’ve been able to get the employer back to the table and finally prepared to negotiate.”
