McGill workers could strike

Union represents student affairs, lab support and housing

by

McGill University’s student affairs, course registration, lab support and residence management workers have voted in favour of a strike mandate, meaning a strike would now be legal. More than 1,700 workers belong to the Non-Academic Certified Association, which has been without a contract since 2010. They want pension and benefits protection, scheduling rights and a “proper wage scale,” according to their union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada. They will meet with McGill negotiators today.
