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.
