Faculty at Memorial University and Université Laval have recently voted in favour of strike mandates. Saltwire reports that 90% of Memorial University of Newfoundland Faculty Association (MUNFA) members voted in favour of a strike vote. The key issues being debated include salary, pension benefits, contractual positions, and university governance. The MUNFA executive committee has set a strike deadline of January 30. In Quebec, Syndicat des professeurs de l’Université Laval have also voted in favour of a strike mandate with the potential strike occurring as soon as February 20th. The faculty members told Journal de Montréal that they would need to see significant progress on key issues such as workload, remuneration, and academic freedom to avoid a strike.
