The University of Lethbridge Faculty Association (ULFA) strike is into its fifth week, but a new development shows signs of potential progress.

ULFA president Dan O’Donnell confirmed to Global News on Friday afternoon that the faculty association is set to hold a special meeting on Saturday to place a proposed collective agreement in front of the membership for a ratification vote.

O’Donnell says if ratified, U of L faculty could return to work as early as Tuesday and classes could resume by Wednesday.

ULFA has about 500 members, who all went on strike as of Feb. 10, 2022; the association’s contract ended in July 2020.

The two parties entered mediation to try to settle the terms of a future collective agreement earlier this week.
