Message to students on the first day of the strike

Dear Mount Allison Students,

MAFA wants you to know that both teams negotiated throughout the weekend, exchanging proposals and hoping to reach a settlement. Regrettably, this did not happen.

We recognize that a strike creates a challenging situation for students. Please be assured that we want to get back to our classrooms, labs, and desks as soon as possible. We take the issues that have been raised in these negotiations seriously, and have taken a strong principled stand on them. What is ultimately at stake for us is the well being of the university’s academic mission. We have not taken this stand lightly.

We welcome your questions and inquiries. PLEASE get in touch. We want you to. You can email us (mafa@mta.ca), tweet us (@MAFA_MTA) or simply pop by our Strike Headquarters at 98 Main. You can also come by the picket lines. Our members will be happy to answer your questions.

Your Professors and Librarians
