Western University and its Faculty Association (UWOFA) are working towards a new contract and much progress has been made to date. This week and next, faculty are holding information meetings and taking a strike vote; this is a standard part of the collective-bargaining process. Conciliated talks have been scheduled for October.
Western and faculty have a long history of working professionally throughout contract talks, and it is our goal to achieve a successful collective agreement at the bargaining table.
All services on campus continue as normal.
