Faculty decline university’s offer


Following an intensive weekend of negotiations, Nipissing University's full-time Faculty chose to withdraw their services and commence a strike as of 12:01 a.m. on Monday, November 2.

All classes on Nipissing’s campus, including those taught by part-time faculty, will be suspended. The Brantford and Muskoka campuses will be closed.

Nipissing has set up a website to answer questions and provide information for students. For more information, please visit www.nipissingu.ca/updates

“We feel that our offer is fair, and we are disappointed that the faculty has chosen to reject it. As a public sector employer, dependent on government grants and tuition for revenue, the university must demonstrate fiscal responsibility,” said Dr. Mike DeGagné, President and Vice-Chancellor. “The university remains committed to reaching an agreement with our faculty that is fair and reasonable. We hope that our students will be back in class very soon.”
