As you have probably heard, the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) representing full time faculty will be going on strike. Both CUPE 3909 Unit 1 and Unit 2 have valid collective agreements with the University of Manitoba that are in full force and effect at this time and Manitoba Labour Law requires us to report to work during the UMFA work stoppage.
We have been advised by the University that CUPE 3909 Instructors in both units (Unit 1 students and Unit 2 sessionals) must continue to teach their courses.
Students working as CUPE 3909 TAs, Tutors, Seminar Leaders, Lab Demonstrators and Grader/Markers have been advised to contact their faculty/college/school/department to determine their activities.
If you have any questions please refer to the University of Manitoba FAQ page.
Contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We will continue to communicate with you during this period and will provide you with any relevant information that you need to know.
