A tentative agreement has been reached between the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and the faculty association (UOITFA), according to UOIT.
The agreement needs to be ratified by the more than 170 tenured and tenure-track members of the association and UOIT administration. No date has been announced for a ratification vote.
The two sides were negotiating in advance of a Monday, March 21 strike deadline set by the UOITFA.
A strike would have impacted more than 10,000 students at UOIT and thousands more on the campus it shares with Durham College.
According to the UOITFA, among the issues concerning faculty members are wages and class sizes.
