Labour negotiations updates from UQAR, NOSM U, CNC, SFU


Labour negotiations and work stoppages at several institutions have surfaced in the news throughout the last week. At the Université du Québec à Rimouski, faculty have voted 93.5% in favour of an unlimited general strike. At NOSM University, the NOSM U Faculty and Staff Association, OPSEU Local 677 has reportedly voted 100% in favour of a strike mandate and has requested a no-board report, alleging that the administration “continues to stonewall proposals.” At College of New Caledonia, the Faculty Association of CNC issued a 72-hour strike notice last Saturday as negotiations continued. Simon Fraser University’s Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) recently received a $10K donation from the Toronto Raptors and a visit from Raptors Player Garrett Temple, who spoke in favour of the union’s strike. TSSU has been on strike since late September.
