MUN postdoctoral fellows unionize

May 11, 2012

Following a recent certification vote ballot count by the Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Relations Board, nearly 60 postdoctoral fellows who work at Memorial University will form a separate bargaining unit of Lecturers' Union of MUN (LUMUN), a directly chartered local of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). "This victory opens the door for another group of academic workers at Memorial to negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment," says a PSAC representative. LUMUN represents part-time academics who teach credit courses on a per-course basis. PSAC News Release
