Labour union updates from McGill, NSCC, UWinnipeg

McGill University, Nova Scotia Community College, and the University of Winnipeg have each released updates on their ongoing labour negotiations. The Association of Graduate Students Employed by McGill have voted in favour of a strike mandate after negotiations reportedly failed with the university. More than 2,300 McGill teaching assistants are now preparing to strike and have warned students and professors of a “major disruption.” NSCC and the Atlantic Academic Union–which represents more than 1,000 staff members–have reached a tentative agreement, averting a strike that was expected to start yesterday. The agreement’s ratification vote is scheduled for later this week. UWinnipeg and the UWinnipeg Faculty Association have successfully ratified a new collective agreement, which will be in effect until March 2027.
