CBU CBUFA Ratify Collective Agreement

(Sydney, NS) – The CBU Board of Governors and CBU Faculty Association (CBUFA) have ratified the tentative agreement reached earlier this month.  During a special meeting of the Board held Monday, February 13, the Board voted unanimously to accept the most recent proposal. The CBUFA held a membership vote over February 16 and 17, with 103 members voting in favour and 20 voting against the agreement.

“We’re thrilled to have a contract now in place for our faculty association,” says Dr. Dale Keefe, Interim President of Cape Breton University. “This is an exciting time for CBU as we look to the future and work toward creating an even stronger University. CBU faculty plays an integral role in the CBU and CB communities, so we’re very much looking forward to continuing to work with them.”

“Members of the faculty union are pleased to have a new contract in place and are happy to be able to concentrate on making Cape Breton University a first-rate choice for students to study, do research, and make positive contributions to their community,” says Andrew Reynolds, Chair of the CBUFA Communications Committee. “We look forward to being equal partners in managing and solving challenges that CBU may face in the future for the benefit of all its stakeholders.”

The new three-year contract includes wage increase of 1.25 per cent each year, as well as clarifying the conditions under which layoffs can occur.

  • Spotted @cbu_library @cbuniversity newly @uchicagopress published work by our own Dr. Andrew S. Reynolds "The Third Lens: Metaphor and the Creation of Modern Cell Biology." Does science aim at providing an account of the #world that is literally true or objectively true? Understanding the difference requires paying close attention to #metaphor and its role in #science. In #TheThirdLens, Dr. Andrew S. Reynolds argues that metaphors, like #microscopes and other instruments, are a vital tool in the construction of #scientificknowledge and explanations of how the world works. More than just rhetorical devices for conveying difficult ideas, metaphors provide the conceptual means with which #scientists interpret and intervene in the world. #CBUFA #cbuniversity #capebretonuniversity #uchicago #uchicagopress #moderncell #biology #philosophy #CBU #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty
