The University of Winnipeg and its professors have reached a tentative three-year collective agreement, easing fears of students that their education could be interrupted by a strike.

A news release this afternoon said the deal came after three days of mediation. The release said details of the pact won’t be shared until it has been ratified by the U of W Faculty Association.

The mediator was appointed after two days of conciliation failed to get movement on a new deal.

The U of W has never had a faculty strike, though it came within a few hours of a strike in 2010. Professors have been without a contract since March 31, 2013.

University of Manitoba professors earlier settled for a three-year deal with a compounded pay increase of 7.1 per cent.
