CBU strike possible

Cape Breton University could be strikebound before the end of the month.

The Faculty Association has set January 23rd as its strike date.  The association’s executive has given much more than the required 48 hours notice.  Association spokesman Andrew Reynolds in a news release said the main issue in dispute is the layoff clause, but the strike notice is also a referendum on the management of CBU.  He said the university is being steered towards the rocks and will soon run aground.
