Labour union updates from McGill, NBCC, Western

Three updates related to labour negotiations on postsecondary campuses have recently been issued. At McGill University, the Association of McGill Professors of Law (AMPL) has launched an indefinite strike after failing to reach a tentative agreement with McGill University. Saltwire reports that the New Brunswick Union–which represents 700 instructors at New Brunswick Community College–may go on strike in the new school year. This announcement reportedly follows the Government of New Brunswick’s rejection of the basic framework agreement that was negotiated between NBCC and the union. In Ontario, CBC reports that Western University teaching assistants may end their strike soon, with representatives of the Public Service Alliance of Canada Local 610 reporting that they are close to reaching a deal.
