    UMFA president, Mark Hudson said he’s optimistic a deal can be reached soon.

    “We haven’t reached a settlement yet, obviously, but I think if some progress hadn’t been made, they might not be going back into the room today,” he said.

    Professors have backed down a little bit on their demands for a salary increase and are now concerned more about their work load.

    Although many classes are cancelled, some are still being taught  by non-bargaining members. You can find the full list online.

    The last faculty strike at the University of Manitoba happened back in 2001 and lasted about four days.
