CUPE strike update ‑ Oct 24

Posted by admin on October 24, 2022 in Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Local 3912

Thank you to all members of our Dalhousie community for their patience and respectful engagement with one another on campus, including on picket lines, during the current labour disruption.

As we have made clear throughout this process, the Dalhousie Board of Governors is committed to exploring all options to reach an agreement with CUPE Local 3912.  

Today, the Board wrote to the Union proposing the parties agree to resolve negotiations through interest arbitration.  

In interest arbitration, the union and employer are bound by the decision of a neutral third party — an arbitrator — who makes a final decision on any items for which the parties have failed to reach agreement.

If the parties were to agree to interest arbitration, CUPE 3912 members would return to work and resume all regular duties.
