Update: Potential University of Windsor labour disruption

Friday, September 12, 2014

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 at www.wufa.ca.

The UME and LEW leadership has developed a contingency plan to support all our UME students during this potential labour disruption.

To all students, this is a reminder that your classes in Windsor will continue as scheduled on September 15 and moving forward. Please allow yourself 15-20 minutes extra travel time on Monday to get to campus and your class. Be sure also to read the FAQ's and specifically those sections related to parking.

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.

Thank you.
