I am pleased to advise you that our colleagues at St. Francis Xavier have reached a tentative settlement after 17 days on strike. A ratification vote is scheduled for tomorrow, with the Executive unanimously recommending acceptance. Details of the settlement will be released to the membership at the meeting.
As we saw with Brandon last year, it sometimes takes a strike to convince administrations and boards of governors that they must agree to fair and equitable terms in a collective agreement. Congratulations to our everyone in the St.FXAUT for their determination, commitment and solidarity in these difficult times.
