Mediation talks at TRU have failed, said Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association president Tom Friedman Friday.

  • Feb. 5, 2016 5:00 a.m.

Mediation undertaken in an attempt to bring TRU administration and the TRU Faculty Association to a negotiated settlement on a new collective agreement has failed, TRUFA president Tom Friedman said Friday in a press release.

In the absence of a negotiated settlement, the mediator has made recommendations for a settlement to both parties.

The TRU Faculty Association Executive met Friday afternoon and has decided to bring the mediator’s recommendations to a general faculty meeting next Tuesday.
