Carleton profs won’t strike

If agreement cannot be reached, negotiations will go to arbitration


Faculty at Carleton university have agreed not to strike. According to a statement released simultaneously on the university’s website and the Carleton University Academic Staff Association’s (CUASA) website “All non monetary proposals have been withdrawn.” At the beginning of October faculty voted 88.5 per cent to give the union a strike mandate. The dispute initially centred over a proposal from the university to revamp the tenure and promotion process. The joint statement issued Sunday appears to imply that changes to tenure are no longer on the table. Negotiations, aided by a mediator, will continue on monetary matters, and both sides have agreed to not release any further details until mediation is completed. If an agreement cannot be reached, negotiations will be referred to arbitration, and “It has been agreed there will be no strike.”
