MUN reaches agreements with permanent and part-time faculty

January 15, 2019

CBC reports that the association representing Memorial University’s 900 permanent and contract faculty has reached a tentative deal with the university's administration. "We haven't had a chance to study the details yet, but we're obviously very pleased to have reached this point after all this time," said MUNFA President Robin Whitaker. CBC adds that MUN also struck a tentative agreement last week with the Lecturers' Union of Memorial University of Newfoundland, which represents its per-course instructors. LUMUN President Martha Wells told CBC that the union had been in negotiations for better pay since April 2017. The new deal provides better pay for most of the union’s per-course instructors, Wells added, but the “low end of our scale is still very low.” CBC|CBC(2) (NL)
