Laurentian releases draft framework for members whose employment was altered, terminated

August 17, 2021
Laurentian University has released a draft framework for members of the Laurentian University Faculty Association (LUFA) and the Laurentian University Staff Union (LUSU) whose employment was altered or terminated. The framework covers the terms and conditions for severance pay, health benefits, and compensation. LUSU President Tom Fenske explained that the method includes an equation that claimants can use to calculate what Laurentian owes them, but that claimants likely will only get a percentage of the sum. “Our members are in the same pool as banks that are owed substantially more money,” said Fenske. “And so they’re all going to be treated the same. It’s going to be owed collectively.” Negotiations are ongoing and the framework has yet to be finalized. CBC (ON)
