Statement from Heather Munroe-Blum, Principal and Vice-Chancellor: I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Vaughan Dowie as Executive Head of Public Affairs, effective immediately. In this position, he will report directly to the Principal and Vice-Chancellor and will serve as a member of the University’s senior team.
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.
We wish to offer our deepest sympathies to all those affected by the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. On behalf of the University, Professor Heather Munroe-Blum, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, extends condolences to the families of two members of the McGill community, Professor Michael Moss and graduate Elizabeth Russell, who died in the tragic events.
