uMontréal lecturers hold half-day strike

February 16, 2010

Unionized instructions at the Université de Montréal, who have been without a contract since last August, staged a four-hour walkout Monday afternoon. The union's president says the deal being offered to lecturers is a step back. The union is threatening to increase pressure tactics and has not ruled out a general strike. The main issues are class sizes, salaries, and retirement. uMontréal remained open Monday with most services offered as usual. CTV | uMontréal News (in French)
