Capilano University strike ends after both sides agree to mediation
WATCH: A sigh of relief for Capilano University students held in limbo as negotiations between faculty and the school came to a halt last week. Aaron McArthur reports.
Instructors at Capilano University have agreed to suspend their strike.
Both sides have been in negotiations for a new collective agreement since December 2014. Late Monday afternoon they agreed to non-binding mediation. As a result, the union will suspend its strike action.
The university will resume operations Tuesday. Exams will begin on Thursday, April 16 and end Friday, April 24.
UPDATE: We are pleased to report that the CFA has agreed to suspend strike action. Final exams will proceed on April 16. More to come.
