Bargaining Update

The University was scheduled to go to arbitration with the Faculty Association Oct 20-22. The interest arbitration process is complicated, with many submissions, and issues arose in mid-October. As a result, the arbitration board adjourned the hearing. The hearing is rescheduled for February 16-18, 2016. The 3-person arbitration board will determine the outstanding matters for the collective agreement with the Faculty Association with effect from July 1, 2014. The arbitration decision is expected in spring 2016.
