Brandon Faculty Ratify New Contract

Members of the Brandon University Faculty Association voted overwhelmingly to accept the tentative agreement that had been reached Nov. 11 with the assistance of Mediator John Scurfield during their three-day strike. The four-year agreement features an increase in salaries averaging one per cent per year, one service increment in each year of the contract, three back increments and a signing bonus of $500 per full-time member. Other features include the right to privacy consistent with the traditions of academic freedom; the creation of a technology review committee; and, language to enhance the role and strengthen the status of departmental recommendations regarding workload assignment. The new contract expires in March 2002.
