U of M makes public its offer to professors

  • Print

The University of Manitoba has gone public in bargaining with professors -- reporting on the university website that it is offering 8.9 per cent over four years.

Vice-president administration Paul Kochan has also told the campus that the U of M Faculty Association is calling a strike vote.

However, UMFA has communicated privately to its members that the union fears that the university is threatening tenure and academic freedom.

UMFA president Prof. Sharon Alward would only say that the professors are disappointed with Kochan’s actions, and believe they are still bargaining in good faith.

Alward said Wednesday’s vote is to authorize taking a strike vote if and when UMFA decides it is necessary to do so, and it is not a strike vote that members are taking tomorrow evening.
