Pursuant to the terms of the September 29, 2014 arbitration award, the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and the Association of University New Brunswick Teachers (AUNBT) are required to negotiate the following:
“The additional increases awarded are to be made on a triangulated basis. Should the parties fail to agree on how this is to be done, the matter is to be remitted to the Board.”
The UNB and AUNBT have reached an impasse on the manner in which these additional faculty salary increases are to be implemented. The UNB and AUNBT were able to reach an agreement that the increases would be provided as a fixed dollar amount, but were unable to agree whether the increases should be provided on July 1st and January 1st, or on July 1st only.
On Thursday November 20th, the parties sent a joint request to the Arbitration Board to make a ruling on this issue. We look forward to a quick resolution of this matter.
