Classes resume Monday at Université Sainte-Anne after 7-week strike ends
The university and faculty union have agreed to go ahead with binding arbitration
Classes will resume Monday at Nova Scotia's only French language post-secondary institution, after a seven-week strike strike by professors and librarians ended.
A news release on the Université Sainte-Anne website on Thursday said following successful mediation, the university and the faculty union — the APPBUSA — agreed to go ahead with binding arbitration.
An email sent to the university community on Friday said the university's board of governors approved adding an extra week of classes to the winter term.
The union said it was seeking pay equity with professors in English-speaking institutions. It was also demanding their workload be rebalanced to meet the requirements of a new strategic plan announced by the university.
