University of Lethbridge Faculty Votes to Strike
The University of Lethbridge could be headed for a strike as early as this week. In an overwhelming majority, the U of L Faculty Association voted 92% in favour of strike action in labour negotiations with the University’s Board of Governors. The vote comes after nearly two years of inconclusive negotiations and two months of mediation.
Eighty-seven percent of the faculty association’s membership participated in the election, which was held last Wednesday and Thursday through an online ballot, making history as the first strike vote by U of L faculty.
The union says that it has filed the notice to strike, with pickets scheduled to begin Thursday morning at 11am, unless the two sides are able to reach a settlement before then.
