“CIHR’s Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis: On the Move”
At the session held on September 19 with both AMURE bargaining units, the university explained its position on layoffs, end of contracts and recalls of research associates and assistants. This led to questions and several exchanges between the parties. A tentative agreement on the majority of these elements was presented by McGill. The parties reached an agreement in principle on the majority of the issues at hand, but were unable to reach an agreement on the notice of termination of employment.
The University submitted to AMURE (Association of McGill University Research Employees/Public Service Alliance of Canada) the latest version of the articles on posting, appointments and reappointments, and on probationary period. The two bilingual documents include suggested changes from the union. Texts applicable to associates and assistants will be reviewed by the union and should be ratified at the next meeting, set for September 19.
McGill University is proud to welcome four new Banting Postdoctoral Fellows who come from as far afield as Australia and Italy to continue their studies in Montreal. Their research ranges from the study of musical improvisation from the 15th to the 18th century to working on DNA nanostructure interfaces. The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology), announced the latest recipients of Canada's most prestigious postdoctoral awards at an event held at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario earlier today.
