Members of the Syndicat des professeures et professeurs de l’Université Laval (SPUL) have announcd that they intend to go on strike as of Monday. The union has reportedly been in negotiation with Université Laval since September and the two parties have not yet come to an agreement. SPUL members voted 96% in favour of a strike in January. Key issues for the negotiations include salaries, workload, and protection of colleagues without permanent status who are taking sick leave. Teaching and learning activities led by union members will be suspended for two weeks.
