Concordia profs give strike mandate to union

Concordia University

One-thousand Concordia full-time professors may be walking out of classrooms in the next few weeks. 

According to CBC News, 74 per cent of the Concordia University Faculty Association members have voted in favour of strike action.

The union’s leaders say they have had enough of the university’s uncooperative attitude towards contract negotiations and think that a strike will get the message across.

CUFA president Lucie Lequin says that since the union was able to secure a strike mandate, they hope the administration will improve on previous offers in order to avoid tension on campus.
