As university students start getting ready for the fall term, they won’t need to worry about a strike at Acadia University.

The Wolfville university announced Thursday they ratified a new collective agreement with their staff that will last until 2014.

“With this new, long-term agreement in place, we can now focus our full attention on the upcoming academic year and Acadia’s students, who will begin arriving in the next few weeks,” said Ray Ivany, president and vice-chancellor of Acadia, in a statement.

“We will be heading into the fall term with positive momentum and a new sense of confidence within our entire campus community.”

Negotiations on this contract started back in May.
