On 17 January 2007, the Negotiating Committees for the both parties met for a short, but frank and open exchange concerning the status of collective bargaining. The administration said that it wished to apply to the LRB for a two week extension to the deadline, a request that would require MUNFA’s agreement. They said they could and would use the additional time �constructively’ with third parties to formulate a response to MUNFA’s proposal on Article 31.
The MUNFA Executive has agreed to this two-week extension. We look forward to a salary and benefits proposal being presented for MUNFA’s consideration by the end of January and will keep all Academic Staff Members advised.
