Brandon faculty vote in favour of a strike

Last week, members of the Brandon University Faculty Association (BUFA) supported a strike mandate, with 87% voting in favour.

A major priority for BUFA is to improve equity, diversity and inclusion, and to decolonize and indigenize their collective agreement. Their negotiating team is back at the bargaining table this week, knowing their membership is behind them should they reach an impasse.

BUFA represents teaching faculty and professional members including instructors, librarians, counsellors and education specialists. They currently have 257 regular members and 93 contract academic staff.
