The University of New Brunswick Board of Governors and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 60550 Union of Graduate Student Workers have voted in favour of ratifying a renewal of their collective agreement.

“We are very pleased to have reached a mutually beneficial agreement,” said Peter McDougall, associate vice-president, UNB Human Resources. “Graduate students are very important to the success of UNB and the work that they do during their course of studies is extremely important.”

The new agreement includes an eight-year term which will provide labour stability and predictable wage increases until 2021.
