WINNIPEG – There’s hope for a deal today to end the faculty strike at the University of Manitoba.
The two sides will get back to the bargaining table this afternoon.
The University is set to propose a new offer they hope might settle the workload issue, which remains the main sticking point for professors.
We’re into a third week of the strike and if it drags on much longer, students will be looking at major changes to their schedule for the winter term, which could include cancelling reading week in February.
Exam dates have already been pushed back for thousands of students whose classes have been cancelled since professors walked off the job three weeks ago.
