Breaking: Strike may be averted

Gazette LogoThe government of Nova Scotia has decided to grant Dalhousie full and permanent solvency relief without requiring the university’s pension plan to switch to a jointly sponsored plan (JSPP).

The switch in pension plan governance and the possibility of making payments of up to $50 million per year has been the main issue of negotiations so far. This development means that the polarizing issue could be taken off the table.

Karen Janigan, communications officer for the Dal Faculty Association (DFA) says hopefully this means a strike can be averted. The two sides are still in negotiations today.
