This morning unionized faculty at Saint Francis Xavier University took to the picket line. The StFX Association of University Teachers (StFXAUT) has taken legal strike action as of Jan. 28 after talks with the StFX University Administration yielded no settlement.
The StFXAUT has been in contract negotiations with the university’s administration since July 2012, trying to secure changes including pay raises and improved benefits. According to a recent StFXAUT press release, “Even though the AUT will be on strike they still invite the administration to return to negotiations.” The association represents over 400 members at StFX.
Here’s some reactions from the university community:
