Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Attention Meds: 2015; 2016; 2017; 2018:

On Friday, September 5, 2014, the University Windsor Faculty Association (WUFA) released a public statement regarding the ongoing labour negotiations with the University of Windsor.

The following information regarding strike action was shared:

if there is no settlement of current contract negotiations by midnight Sunday, September 14, 2014, faculty members, librarians, and AAS ancillary staff, including coaches, teaching-learning specialists, and part-time faculty, will hold a one-day strike on Monday, Sept. 15. The one-day strike will be followed by rotating half-day strikes (a.m./p.m.), to be announced two hours in advance. If no settlement is reached by October 1, the union will implement a full work stoppage at a date to be announced.”

You can read the full statement here.

The UME and Learner Equity & Wellness (LEW) leadership has developed a contingency plan to support all our UME students during this labour disruption. Classes in Windsor will continue as scheduled on September 15 and moving forward.

We have prepared an FAQ for you that will appear in a subsequent Blog post. If you have any other questions or concerns not covered in the document, please don’t hesitate to contact the UME Office in Windsor or London.

We will continue to update you directly through email with information regarding the potential strike. We will also post all updates and communication on the YouMe Blog and as new information is received notifications will appear on the School’s official Facebook page.
