U of Winnipeg profs accept new deal

  • Print

​University of Winnipeg professors have voted overwhelmingly to approve a new three-year contract.

Faculty association president Prof. Hugh Grant said Friday evening that members voted 88 per cent in favour of a deal that he believes is close to the deal University of Manitoba faculty reached last fall.

UWFA will receive 2.5, 2.4, and two per cent increases — a 7.1 per cent compounded increase, the same amount U of M achieved at the end of three years with 2.9, 2.0, and 2.0 increases.

Grant said some members will receive a lump sum in the third year.

The two sides reached a tentative agreement last weekend following three days with a provincial mediator. UWFA had earlier voted 92 per cent in favour of a strike that was to begin at 12:01 a.m. on Feb. 24.

U of W professors have never gone on strike or been locked out. Their previous contract expired March 31, 2013.
