Strike Mandate at Dalhousie University

Overwhelming Success on Strike Vote

On March 25, 2022, Dalhousie teaching assistants, demonstrators, markers, and part-time and hourly instructors voted in favour of authorizing a strike.

This result provides the Negotiating Committee with strong support as we are heading into conciliation with the Employer later this week in an effort to avoid a strike.

Earlier negotiations with the Employer had reached an impasse. Our members’ willingness and commitment to go on strike if necessary will be instrumental in achieving our bargaining goals at conciliation.

Should the Employer continue to refuse to agree to a fair collective agreement and conciliation fail, we may be in a legal strike position 14 days after the conciliator submits their report.
