University of New Brunswick Strike Update
The strike at the University of New Brunswick has entered its second week as the union representing faculty and librarians have yet to reach an agreement with the university's administration. Support for the Association of University of New Brunswick Teachers has come from across Canada, with professors from universities and colleges in Ontario, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and other parts of New Brunswick joining strikers in Fredericton, NB for a rally. During the rally, the Canadian Association of University Teachers presented the union with a $1 million check which will go towards strike pay.
