The University of Windsor has cancelled morning classes on Thursday while the Windsor University Faculty Association holds a strike.

“We have been advised that the Windsor University Faculty Association intends to hold a half-day work stoppage on Thursday,” said University news manager Lori Lewis.

The strike will take place between 8:30am and 12:50pm, and the University has cancelled undergraduate and graduate teaching related activities during that time period, Lewis said.

Cancelled activities include classes, laboratories, major paper presentations, and all first, second and third year clinical placements in the Nursing program. Laboratory work will also be suspended except where required for animal welfare. The only exception is classes at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, which will continue.

Lewis said based on WUFA’s announcement that its job action will end at 12:50 PM on September 18th, all teaching activities will resume at 1pm.

The University plans to remain open on Thursday morning and all other services including the Libraries will be available.

The Campus Community Barbeque scheduled for Thursday at noon will go ahead as planned in the CAW Student Centre courtyard.
