After a stretch of renewal negotiations that started in July, the University of Guelph has reached a tentative contract agreement with its faculty’s union, avoiding a second strike from hitting Guelph-Humber.
The school and the U of G Faculty Association that represents some 800 faculty, librarians and veterinarians also represent many of those teaching or providing services at GH, much like Humber College’s union.
In a post on the university website on Sunday, the U of G said that final bargaining details will “remain confidential” until it’s ratified by the “membership of UGFA and the University’s Board of Governors.”
The University of Guelph-Humber would likely suffer a shut down much like it is now from the college union strike if the UGFA were to walk away from the bargaining table.
However, it appears as though a deal is on its way to confirmation.
The Post reached out to Ignite leadership for comment, but did not receive a response.
