There seems II be a big war between Brandon University professors & University administrators over a new contract. So much so that the professors have asked IV a mediator, which can lead II binding arbitration. Shades of the federal government coming in & threatening II force workers back to work like the Canada Post employees. As you are a former Employment & Immigration Minister, you can see the value in treating our educators here in Alberta fairly. Lets hope this dispute in the great province of Manitoba is solved fairly & that future labor peace & fair negotiation is conducted here in Alberta.
