Negotiations

In regards to the many statements, opinions, and correspondence we have received as Acadia students relating to the Acadia Faculty and Administration Negotiations:

AGSA is a student support group, with a mission statement that reads:

AGSA exists to be a strong and collective voice in the effective advocacy for the development and maintenance of a cohesive graduate student community now and in the future at Acadia University.

We understand that this situation is confusing and very complicated. The details behind the negotiations are not known to any of us, as students have not been involved in any of the negotiations. While students are absolutely impacted by any decisions made, we have no control over anything that may or may not happen. That being said, we trust that both parties involved in these negotiations are trying their best to figure out a reasonable solution, for students in the long term.

As students, we are in a difficult position, and one that is very hard to understand. All AGSA can do is be there for you, in person or online; whatever it is you need, please do not hesitate to contact us. While we may not be able to answer your questions, we may be able to help ease your anxiety and fears. We are all in this together, and we will all be impacted, regardless of the end results.

We would like to emphasize that as a student support group, AGSA is here to represent you. As an organization, we take no sides in these negotiations, aside from the perspective of our community, the graduate students of AcadiaU. We believe that both the Faculty and the Administration are keeping students in mind regarding all their decisions.

We support the ASU in any future communications they put forward that show this same concern – Students First.
