ULaval lecturers approve agreement in principle, Memorial instructors reach tentative deal

Both Université Laval and Memorial University have released labour dispute updates. The Syndicat des charges et chargés de course de l’Université Laval have voted 97% in favour of approving an agreement in principle with ULaval. If ratified, this new agreement will guarantee a salary increase of 22.6% over five years for unionized ULaval lecturers. The Lecturers’ Union of Memorial University of Newfoundland (LUMUN) has reached a tentative deal with Memorial, thereby averting a strike that was scheduled to begin this week. LUMUN says that the next step is for the union members to vote on the deal.
