Faculty members at the University of Manitoba have voted to authorize a potential strike.
The University of Manitoba Faculty Association said 80 per cent of the votes cast were in favour. The union said 85 per cent of its membership voted over a three-day period ending Sunday.
The union said it will hold a car and bike horn-honking protest at the legislature at 2 p.m. Thursday "to demonstrate its resolve."
The university has proposed a zero per cent salary increase, the union said.
