(Ottawa – 3 February 2020) The 150 full-time and 60 part-time faculty and librarian members of the Mount Allison Faculty Association (MAFA) set up picket lines early this morning in Sackville after seven months of frustrating bargaining.
The key issues at the negotiating table are job security and compensation for part-time faculty, academic resources and workload, disability accommodation, and employer demands for concessions on tenure, promotion, and sabbatical processes.
“This round of negotiation is about protecting the quality of the education that we offer at Mount Allison. Our working conditions are students’ learning conditions,” says MAFA President Matthew Litvak.
