KAMLOOPS — Is there good news in the ongoing battle between Thompson Rivers University and its faculty?

It's hard to say because of the media blackout on right now, but TRU's faculty association posted a hopeful update on its Twitter account this morning.

TRUFA tweeted that mediation between the two sides is continuing today.


Sessions began on Friday and were only scheduled to last through the weekend.

TRUFA members served strike notice last Monday and took 'work-to-rule' job action last Thursday.

Their last contract expired last spring.
