McGill University has accepted the conciliator’s proposal for a new collective agreement with MUNACA. McGill’s decision follows the vote by 80% of MUNACA’s members in favour of the same proposal at the MUNACA General Assembly held on Thursday, March 26, 2009.The new agreement will run until November 30, 2010.
Recent advertisements purchased by MUNACA in campus newspapers and some Montreal dailies have contained misleading and inaccurate information. The University administration understands that in the heat of a labour dispute, rhetoric can go beyond normal discourse and things can be said or done, in support of a position, which might not otherwise be advanced. Nonetheless, errors demand correction.
The University regrets that, despite intensive bargaining, the help of a provincially appointed conciliator and an offer to increase salaries by 8.5% over three years ending November 30, 2010, a contract agreement with MUNACA has so far proven elusive.
