UNB Labour Relations

As of Jan. 30, 2014, UNB and the AUNBT have reached an agreement to recommend suspension of the strike/lockout.  This comes as a result of reaching a tentative agreement on the key issues related to wages.

Details about the resumption of classes and other services will be addressed as they become available. In the interim, the university wants to assure students and community members that we will make every effort to keep you informed during the process. Please refer to this site for updates.

University to distribute net funds saved from labour disruption to students

UNB’s Board of Governors, in consultation with our student members, is pleased to announce that the university will be distributing the net funds saved during our recent labour disruption to students in recognition of the hardships and inconvenience it caused them.  

The University Board and administration feel strongly that there should be no financial benefit to the University as a result of the labour disruption, and accordingly will be distributing any net savings directly to our students.

While exact figures and details are yet to be determined, it is estimated that full-time students should expect to receive a lump sum credit on their account in excess of $200 with a lesser amount for part-time students.  We anticipate the funds will be credited to student accounts towards the end of March.

We would like to thank the university community for its patience and support during this difficult time.  

We are delighted to have our students back in class and our professors back doing the work they love.  Over the coming months, we will all need to work hard to recreate the warm and friendly atmosphere for which UNB is so well known.
