CBU – CBUFA Labour Negotiations Update: October 24, 2019

To the university community,

As you are likely aware, Cape Breton University and the Cape Breton University Faculty Association filed jointly for conciliation in mid-October.  A Conciliation Officer has been appointed and the conciliation talks are now scheduled to take place on November 13 and 14, 2019.  A Conciliation Officer is a neutral third party who will assist the parties in trying to resolve outstanding issues at negotiations. We are optimistic that we will reach a mutually beneficial agreement through this process.

CBU – CBUFA Labour Negotiations Update: October 11, 2019

To the university community,

Labour Negotiation talks between Cape Breton University (CBU) and the Cape Breton University Faculty Association (CBUFA) began in early July and have been ongoing. Recently, CBU and CBUFA filed jointly for conciliation.  Conciliation is a normal part of the negotiation process when the parties require assistance with resolving issues. We are hopeful that as negotiations continue an agreement can be reached.

While CBUFA will be taking a Labour-action (strike) vote, and CBU respects their rights to do so, it is important for you to know that this does not mean a strike will take place and that our ultimate goal is always to minimize any impact on students and the CBU community.
