Instructors have set up picket lines at Capilano University as they go on strike.
At the beginning of the month, the faculty announced they would withhold grades until a deal is reached in their contract negotiations.
Tuesday night, it advised the administration that they intend to engage in full-scale strike action Wednesday at 7 a.m.
In a release, Capilano University says it is developing contingency measures that will ensure students successfully complete their courses and programs, as close to the original schedule as is feasible.
But, while they don’t have any grades yet, students can rest assured final exams will go on as scheduled — for now.
No matter who wins in the dispute, student union president Brittany Barnes says students will lose the most if the strike drags.
“Students are going to feel that same kind of uncertainty with not knowing what’s going on because nothing has been officially communicated in terms of what will happen if the strike continues into next week, which is the set out exam period.”
