Laurentian Faculty Heading for Strike

Laurentian University Faculty Association (LUFA) members voted 97 percent in favour of giving their negotiation team a strike mandate at a general membership meeting Thursday evening.

The 300 professors and librarians represented by the association have scheduled mediation talks with administration for Sept. 8.

If mediation is unsuccessful, they could strike as soon as Sept. 15.

Thanks to Derek Blackadder of CUPE and Labourstart for this lead
