University, Faculty To Mediate Labour Dispute as Negotiations Fail

Buffalo, US: Faculty and librarians at D’Youville University have worked more than a year without a labor agreement, and the two sides appear to be far apart in negotiations.

Brandon Absher, a philosophy professor and president of D’Youville’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors, said working under a contract that expired Aug. 31, 2021, means more than 150 people have not had a raise in two years despite rising inflation and gas prices.

“To go two years without a cost-of-living wage increase really amounts to a pretty substantial pay cut,” Absher said. “Seeing prices jump while your spending power is decreasing is difficult.”
