The labour dispute at St. Francis Xavier University is officially over and classes will resume this morning.

The striking faculty members voted 96 per cent in favour of accepting the new contract.

The four-year contract includes an eight per cent raise.

Classes resume this morning at 8:15 a.m., students will have one week of classes before their one-week spring break.

Students will have one week of class before reading break begins.

The deal will also see an additional week of classes added to the St. F-X school year to make up for time lost during the three-week strike.

“Additional details regarding the resumption of the term will be made available as soon as possible following a meeting of the University Senate,” said Academic Vice President Dr. Mary McGillivray in a news release.

The St. F-X Association of University teachers has 400 members which includes full and contract faculty, librarians and archivists, laboratory instructors, teaching and clinical staff in the nursing school and extension staff.
