Court orders striking UQAM professors to tone down walkout

March 26, 2009

A Quebec Superior Court judge has granted a temporary injunction ordering striking faculty from the Université du Québec à Montréal to tone down pressure tactics and picket lines and allow students and other university personnel to come and go in peace. The 10-day order bars any attempts to harass, threaten or otherwise prevent people from entering university buildings. The professors have been on strike since last Monday. Montreal Gazette
