WINNIPEG – The search for a compromise to end a faculty strike at the University of Manitoba starts today.
A special conciliator is being brought in to try and help both sides reach a deal.
Professors walked off the job and onto the picket lines Tuesday.
That means classes are cancelled for thousands of students on Wednesday once again.
Faculty say they’re overworked and want to be paid more.
It’s unclear exactly how the conciliation talks will work and how quickly they might lead to an agreement.
The last faculty strike at the U of M happened back in 2001 and lasted about four days.
