FREDERICTON — Striking professors at St. Thomas University in Fredericton have voted to reject a final contract offer from the university.
The vote, conducted by the province's Labour and Employment Board, saw the offer rejected by 72 per cent of full-time faculty and 63 per cent of the part-time staff.
The faculty association had recommended the offer be rejected.
Union president Suzanne Dudziak says she's confident a collective agreement can be reached if the two sides can resume negotiations.
