WINNIPEG – The end of a faculty strike at the University of Manitoba could be in sight.
The two sides met on Sunday and the University presented a ‘comprehensive settlement proposal’ to the faculty association, according to a statement on the U of M’s website.
It is being reviewed and UMFA says it will respond on Monday.
More than 1,200 members officially went on strike last Tuesday, leaving 29,000 students in academic limbo.
Although many classes are cancelled, some are still being taught by non-bargaining members. You can find the full list online.
The last faculty strike at the University of Manitoba happened back in 2001 and lasted about four days.
