Nipissing University Faculty Collective Agreement
As you may have heard, the full-time faculties of Nipissing University voted in favour of a strike mandate. After 37 meetings and more than seven months of negotiations, the employer refuses to discuss our key issues, including pension improvements, and is not ready to table a financial package. They offer claw backs that not only endanger the research and teaching of the faculty, but ultimately jeopardize the high-quality teaching conditions that nipissing students value. Please help us avoid a strike by sending a message to the Board of Governors of Nipissing University to order their team to seriously do reasonable and fair business at nufa.ca/take-action-in-support-of-faculty . . .

Ontario College of Art and Design Faculty Association – OCADFA We are serious about negotiating to avoid a strike, but we cannot do it alone.
We need the employer who commits to a real negotiation, which means that we have the same openness to meet in a compromise. There is no good reason why we will not reach an agreement.
