The Association of McGill Professors of Law (AMPL) has been certified as a faculty association in what it is calling a first for McGill University. The Montreal Gazette reports that AMPL sought certification through Québec’s Tribunal administratif du travail last year, but faced litigation from McGill. The Fédération québécoise des professeures et professeurs d’université stated that McGill is the only federation member where no staff currently benefits from negotiated employment contracts. The tribunal judge decided in favour of AMPL, indicating that it satisfies the legal criteria in QC for certification as a bargaining unit.
