The Université de Montréal and Syndicat général des professeurs et professeures de l’Université de Montréal (SGPPUM) have reached an agreement in principle. By reaching this agreement, the two parties have averted a strike that would have begun last Monday. The union was advocating for salary increases that would compensate for inflation and solutions to address work overload issues. The agreement in principle will be submitted to SGPPUM representatives. The previous collective agreement had expired at the end of May 2022.
