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.

  • Dr. Ian Brodie (Associate Professor, Folklore) will present his sabbatical talk on Wednesday, March 20 from 3:00–4:00pm in CE 313 @cbuniversity. Carrot cake, coffee and tea will be provided. All are welcome! “I am a fan of hilarity”: Possible Directions for Oral-Formulaic Theory and the Study of Stand-Up Comedy. 😄 This talk addresses contemporary studies of oral formulaic theory to begin an exploration on what applicability Parry and Lord’s ideas of “spontaneous composition” could have for the study of stand-up comedy, using a routine from American comedian Paul F. Tompkins @pftompkins that made it to public mediation on four discrete occasions. How is a routine performed more than once: is it repeated, remembered or recreated? In a performance genre that is predicated in part on the surfeit of spontaneity, I consider the crystallization of certain mots justes as “hooks on which to hang a narrative in the teller’s memory” (Siikala 1990). #CBUFA #cbufaresearch #CapeBretonUniversity #CBU #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty #librarians #labinstructors #archivists #researchchairs #nursingpracticeeducators #unionproud #sabbatical #standupcomedy #folklore
