CBUFA has stated that CBU “abruptly left the table” during our final conciliation meeting yesterday. This is false.
Here is what happened:
CBU never left the table abruptly and has always been prepared to negotiate. We remain willing to negotiate.
CBU has withdrawn all other proposals that were problematic for CBUFA.
The only issue left to resolve is money.
CBU’s monetary offer is in line with settlements at other Atlantic Canadian universities, including Dalhousie University, where the same economic increase was recently ratified by over 93% of their faculty.
CBU faculty salaries are fair and competitive with other universities in Atlantic Canada. CBU’s proposal ensures this continues.
CBU will continue to address inaccuracies.
