WINNIPEG – We’re into day three of a faculty strike at the University of Manitoba and both sides are still talking.
The faculty association and the school will sit down again with a conciliator on Thursday.
Faculty Association President Mark Hudson says he’s optimistic they can reach a deal.
“We haven’t reach a settlement yet but… if some progress hadn’t been made they might not be going back in the room today so I’m hopeful,” says Hudson.
Professors have backed down a little bit on their demands for a salary increase and are now concerned more about their work load.
As of Thursday morning, picket lines are back up at entrances to the campus.
