Support staff strike at UQAM

September 9, 2019

Support staff of the Université du Québec á Montréal went on strike as of September 3rd. A major issue prompting the strike is salaries. Union officials report that the offer presented to UQAM support staff is lower than those obtained by other employees in the Québec university sector. "The money on offer is not enough," states union president Louisa Cordeiro. "We work very hard. We have students at heart, the university too, but we deserve better because we are in the middle of university activities.” La Presse | CTV News (QC)
