CBU and CBUFA Reach Tentative Agreement

Cape Breton University and the Cape Breton University Faculty Association are pleased to jointly announce that a tentative collective agreement has been reached. The teams met on November 13 and 14, 2019, with a Provincial Conciliator.

“We are pleased to have reached a tentative agreement,” says David Dingwall, President and Vice-Chancellor of Cape Breton University. “We are looking forward to working together with CBUFA to create the best possible experience for faculty, staff and students of Cape Breton University.”

“Today the bargaining team and executive of CBUFA have endorsed a tentative deal with the employer. I would like to acknowledge the chief negotiator and the entire bargaining team for their work on obtaining a fair agreement for our member,” says Calvin Howley, President of CBUFA. “I would also like to thank the executive, our communications committee and most importantly the entire membership for their support throughout this process. Collective bargaining can be difficult and stressful. The association is committed to working jointly on improving its relationship with the employer.”

The three-year 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.
