U of S in court arguing over president’s ability to veto tenure
SASKATOON – Another chapter in the continuing saga with the University of Saskatchewan that many say is damaging the institution’s reputation.
A Queen’s Bench judge reserved decision Wednesday in a case that deals with tenure veto powers, an issue that has been at the forefront in recent months.
This current issue in court stems from a situation three years ago under then-president Peter MacKinnon who nixed a professor’s nomination for tenure.
An arbitration ruling earlier this year took that ability away from the U of S president.
The university disagrees with the ruling.
The appeal judge is expected to make a ruling in a couple of weeks.
