Fredericton – On Monday, January 6th, the leadership of the Association for University of New Brunswick Teachers (AUNBT) voted unanimously to announce a strike deadline of 12:01am, Monday January 13, 2014. That means unless a settlement can be reached in the next few days, pickets of the over 800 UNB (Fredericton and Saint John) full time academic staff and librarians could be seen early next week.
Members of AUNBT have had clearance to begin a strike since they tallied a 90% pro-strike vote on December 4th. However, on that same day, AUNBT agreed with the UNB Administration that they would hold a truce on any job action, strike or lockout until early January, with the exact date of January 2nd being negotiated days later. Since that date, and especially since classes resumed on January 6th, many students have been on the edge of their seats. Once the truce was over, a strike could be called with 24 hours notice.
