Faculty issues 72-hour strike notice “The employer is ready to continue negotiations and remains committed to reaching an agreement around the table,” the statement said. The Faculty Association also criticized the administration for seeking an agreement allowing it to terminate contracts with some of its members who are not covered by the collective agreement.
