(Halifax) – A second group of Halifax university employees have rejected a contract offer from their employer.

Part-time Faculty and Lab Instructors at Mount Saint Vincent University rejected the employer’s latest offer by a large majority.

CUPE Local 3912 represents some 100 employees at the Mount. 

CUPE National Representative Peter Baxter says, “The key outstanding issues are wages, compensation for Lab Instructors and leaves of absence.

As with Dalhousie, the monetary offer tabled by this employer is far less than what was recently negotiated at SMU. The union is willing to resume contract talks in an effort to avoid strike action,“ says Baxter.

The more than 900 members of CUPE Local 3912 at Dalhousie have also turned down their employer’s last offer.
