Members of the University of Regina Faculty Association will be voting on whether or not to go on strike as they continue to bargain for a new agreement.

Members received their ballots via e-mail and will vote before 8 p.m. on Friday.

While it doesn’t mean academic staff will be going on strike immediately – instead it gives the bargaining team an upper hand when it comes to negotiation.

The faculty association and the university have been bargaining for a new agreement since April, after it expired on June 30, 2017.

The URFA represents approximately 1,050 full-time Academic staff, sessionals, instructors, lab instructors and librarians at the University of Regina.
