In light of recent developments in the COVID landscape and the lack of satisfactory safeguards and information provided by Dalhousie Administration with respect to a safe return to campus, the DFA Executive Committee has met and agreed to the following list of demands:
- mandatory vaccinations for all faculty, students and staff;
- mandatory masking in all indoor public spaces;
- mandatory physical distancing where possible; and
- ventilation that meets public health guidelines.
The DFA is the certified bargaining unit representing the interests of more than 950 professors, instructors, librarians and counsellors at Dalhousie University.
