During the past month, faculties at the University of New Brunswick and Mount Allison University have passed no confidence motions in their administrations.
Five of the largest faculties at UNB Fredericton (Arts, Science, Engineering, Business and Education) have passed no confidence motions in the upper-management committee comprised of the President and Vice Presidents. These motions come after a three week labour disruption at Mount Allison and UNB that raised concerns about the priorities of the administrations. During the past few years, faculties at UNB have been subject to funding cuts, which has reduced staff, programs and resources at the university.
