UM and UMFA begin binding interest arbitration process

Members of UM community invited to watch proceedings

March 9, 2022 — 

On March 11, 2022, the University of Manitoba and the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) will begin binding interest arbitration in relation to outstanding issues from the last round of collective bargaining, including outstanding salary issues and return to work issues.   

In a binding interest arbitration, both parties have agreed to put these outstanding issues to a neutral, third-party arbitrator, who will review each party’s positions and make a final decision that will be binding on both parties. The arbitrator’s decision is made independently and will be informed by the parties’ submissions and legal principles.  

The arbitration proceedings take place on March 11 to 13 at 8:30 a.m. and can be viewed here.

Please note that recording of either or both of the audio or video of this hearing is strictly prohibited. All forms of Zoom recording have been disabled.
