Cape Breton University and Faculty Association Reach Collective Agreement

Cape Breton University and the Cape Breton University Faculty Association are pleased to jointly announce that a tentative collective agreement has been reached.

“We are thrilled to be able to announce that an agreement has been reached today,” says Interim President, Dale Keefe. “We are looking forward to moving past this and working with members of CBUFA and the CBU community to make 2017 a great year at Cape Breton University.”

“CBUFA members are pleased to have the bargaining process come to a conclusion and we look forward to being able to concentrate without distraction on our teaching, research, and our service to the university and the Cape Breton community,” says CBUFA spokesperson Andrew Reynolds. “We hope that this augurs a new spirit of collegiality and cooperativity between the Board of Governors, the senior management and the university’s faculty.”

The agreement is subject to ratification by both the CBU Board of Governors and the CBUFA membership. Both negotiating teams will recommend ratification to their respective parties.

Further details will be announced in the coming days.
