Agreement reached, classes continue
U of M and UMFA reach agreement through mediation.

The University of Manitoba and the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) reached a settlement for a new collective agreement through mediation late on Monday night.

As a result, classes continue as scheduled.

"I extend my congratulations to the bargaining teams for all their efforts to reach a negotiated settlement," said David Barnard, President and Vice-Chancellor, University of Manitoba. "Most importantly, I am pleased to be able to inform our students that we will be open and operating with no disruption to their learning."

The three-year agreement on all major issues will ensure that there will be no work stoppage. The parties have agreed to have the remaining issues arbitrated.
