Queen’s workers send open-letter, rally to renegotiate union contracts


Hundreds of Queen’s University staff and faculty rallied on campus this week to demand fair compensation adjustments. The rally comes after Queen’s University’s eight union presidents–under the Unity Council–wrote an open letter to Queen’s leadership calling for a renegotiation of wages. Specifically, the letter calls on Queen’s to increase wages to be par with those established in Queen’s Faculty Association’s collective agreement “for all years affected by the moderation period imposed by Bill 124.” Queen’s leadership responded to the open letter and said that the university is taking measures to control its $62.8M deficit before it can make a “final decision on Bill 124 and wages.
