I am writing to provide you with an update on the negotiations with the Faculty Association. The two teams met earlier this week with the provincially-appointed conciliator. Following this full day and evening of discussions, I am pleased to inform you that we have reached a tentative agreement. The Faculty Association will be recommending the agreement to its members and bringing it forward for a vote in January. The University's bargaining team will also be recommending the agreement to the Board of Governors. Both teams and the Conciliator worked together to reach a settlement that would serve the interest of the Faculty Association and the University.

I will update you once we have the results of the Faculty Membership vote in January. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
