On Friday, December 8, 2017 the unionized faculty and librarians of the University of St. Michael's College (represented by the University of Toronto Faculty Association) voted 86.4% in favour of authorizing a strike, if necessary. Representatives of UTFA and USMC have been in bargaining and provincial conciliation since August 2017. The outstanding issues are job security for faculty, language concerning diversity in hiring procedures, and a fair and equitable monetary settlement. Their next conciliation meeting is scheduled for January 19, 2018.
