U of M faculty to strike after negotiations reach impasse day before deadline: union

Faculty at Manitoba’s largest university are on the verge of a strike after their union says it has reached an “impasse” in its contract negotiations, one day before a strike deadline. 

Mediation had “failed to produce an agreement that prioritized faculty recruitment and retention,” the University of Manitoba Faculty Association said in a news release on Monday.

Last month, union members voted to authorize strike action, with a deadline set for Nov. 2.

The union represents 1,200 members.
