Conciliation Talks Scheduled March 20; NSGEU Local 77 Files Strike Notice

Earlier today, NSGEU Local 77 filed strike notice for Thursday, March 22.  This is a normal part of the collective bargaining process, and does not guarantee that a strike will happen.

We are confirmed to resume conciliation talks with the union on Tuesday, March 20. We look forward to continuing negotiations with the union and reaching an agreement on Tuesday.

We know this is a stressful time for everyone. However, we are optimistic an agreement will be reached on Tuesday that the union can recommend to its members and the university negotiating team can recommend to the Board of Governors for ratification.

Notice to Students:
In the event of a strike by our employees in NSGEU Local 77, classes will continue, exams will go ahead as scheduled, libraries will remain open, and food services will continue to be available.

Dalhousie’s administrative and technical support staff provide valuable support services to the university, but we will strive to keep frontline service disruptions to a minimum. 

Please be assured that your academic term will not be compromised.
