Bargaining deadline extended

November 1, 2021 — 

UM and UMFA have agreed to continue mediation on Monday and continue negotiating a new collective agreement.

On Oct. 22, UMFA announced a bargaining deadline of Oct. 31 and a potential strike date of Nov. 2. The extension means both parties will continue with mediation in hopes of negotiating a new collective agreement.

The university’s goal throughout the collective bargaining period has been to conclude a collective agreement that supports stability in operations; an outstanding educational experience for our students; fairness to our faculty members; and sustainability for our institution.

Since bargaining began on Aug. 5, UM and UMFA representatives have met 18 times before beginning the mediation process.
