Members of the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) have voted 68 per cent in favour of a strike to settle their bargaining impasse.
The professors have yet to set a strike date, president Prof. Sharon Alward said this morning.
The university has applied for conciliation and says it will not comment publicly while negotiations continue
U of M has offered the professors 8.9 per cent over four years, while the union wants 5.8 per cent over two years.
The sides strongly disagree whether the university position threatens academic freedom and tenure.
