We are committed to ensuring SFU’s campus community has a reliable and accurate source of information on ongoing labour relations and related negotiations. To support this, we will share information on the status of negotiations or related actions, and set the record straight in response to incomplete or misinformation here on this page.
Our first preference in any labour-related contract negotiation is to work together with the union to develop a collective agreement that supports a strong student-focused, sustainable learning and research environment across all SFU campuses.
