Following 72-hour strike notice, CNC and the Faculty Association of CNC continue negotiations

CNC and the Faculty Association of CNC representing the college’s instructional staff have been negotiating for a new collective bargaining agreement under the Province’s Shared Recovery Mandate for the past several months. The parties continue to be engaged in meetings with a mediator from the Labour Relations Board, who is assisting the parties in their discussions.

Recently, the faculty association, which includes nearly 550 employees, issued 72-hour strike notice to the employer.  The notice would put the faculty association in a legal strike position by the afternoon of Sunday October 8. CNC has not received information about what potential strike action may involve.

The college and the faculty association are scheduled to continue bargaining with the mediator to reach a collective agreement that works for both the employees and the college. 

If changes in services take place in the days to come, the college will provide updates on the website as information becomes available.

Currently, just over 390,000 people are covered by tentative and ratified agreements settled under the Shared Recovery Mandate – which is about 97 per cent of unionized employees in the provincial public sector.
