MAFA Ratifies Contract

(Sackville, NB) — The Mount Allison Faculty Association (MAFA) announces that the faculty and librarians of Mount Allison University have approved the proposed new four- year collective agreement between the Union and Board at Mount Allison, with 91% voting in favour.

Rick Hudson, MAFA President, said, “I am very pleased with the level of participation in the vote, and I want to thank our negotiating team for their many hours of hard work.”

The tentative agreement between the two sides was reached in mid-December with the help of the provincially appointed mediator. MAFA Chief Negotiator Brian Campbell said, “We are happy to arrive at an agreement without a strike. This was a team effort that was made possible because of the strong support from the membership at every stage in the process.”
