Tentative agreement reached in UWindsor strike

But students will wait to see whether classes will be in Monday

The University of Windsor and it’s strike faculty have reached a tentative agreement, according to the web sites of the respective parties.

No further details have been released. Both faculty and the Board of Governors must vote to accept the agreement; if they do so, students will return to classes on Monday.

UWindsor’s student newspaper, The Lance, is not optimistic that the settlement will succeed after reading a quote from the faculty association president in The Windsor Star. When asked by The Star how well the tentative agreement dealt with faculty demands, Brown told The Star: “At the moment, I’d rather not comment on that.”

It will be a rollercoaster weekend for UWindsor students as they wait to see if classes are on for Monday. The Lance is doing the best job of covering the situation; I know I’ll be checking their blog over the weekend for updates.
