FREDERICTON – Academic staff at the University of New Brunswick are off the job Monday after talks failed to produce a deal with the school.

 

In a statement, the bargaining committee of the Association of University of New Brunswick Teachers says a last-ditch attempt to resolve a dispute over salary and workload failed Sunday.

The school says staff have withdrawn their services and that all classes will be suspended for the duration of the strike with the exception of some online courses and those in Miramichi.

Association president Miriam Jones says members are looking to be treated the same as their peers at other institutions.

The association had previously voted on a strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. Monday.

The union represents over 1,000 full-time and contract academic staff, librarians and researchers in Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton and Bathurst and their contract expired June 30.
