Mount Allison finalizes deal with faculty union

Board of Regents, faculty ratify agreement

The protracted labour negotiations between Mount Allison University and the faculty association officially ended on Friday. The new three-year collective agreement, tentatively reached on Feb 16, was ratified by the university’s Board of Regents before being signed. Mount Allison faculty voted more than 90 per cent to accept the deal last Monday. According to the Times and Transcript, full-time faculty will see wage increases of 2.5 per cent a year, while part-time faculty will see a five per cent bump in the first year and between two and three per cent for the remainder of the contract. Negotiations had been on going for eight months.
