Librarians and Archivists at the University of Western Ontario have been on
a legal strike as of 12:01 a.m. September 8.
Outstanding issues at the table include: a long-standing pay gap of 20 per
cent between Western Librarians and Archivists - most of whom are women -
and colleagues at comparative universities in Ontario. Other issues
include staff complement and workload.
The 50 unionized librarians and archivists have been without a contract
since June 30, 2011.
