The Manitoban: Challenging times ahead for experienced team
March 22, 2017 —
Bargaining is set to resume between the administration and the faculty association while the Pallister government has signalled that they will likely allow tuition to rise above the rate of inflation. These events may not be directly related, but will become conflated through the university and community stakeholders such as progressives and the campus unions who will be actively engaged in resisting changes to policy and fee increases. While there is certainly a financial case to be made for the necessity of increasing university revenues, this will be a politically untenable position for the new executive.
