Ratification of Article 27

As negotiations were finalizing last December, differences over Article 27 on Intellectual Property were not resolved and the matter was sent to a side table.

The Employer and CUFA representatives came to an agreement earlier this month. The new version of Article 27 was presented to Council and adopted on March 11th, making it possible for faculty members to vote for its ratification. 30% of the electorate had cast their ballot at the closing of the poll yesterday and of that number, over 97 % voted in favour of ratification.
