Helen Campbell’s Passing (March 02, 1941 – November 09, 2018)

On November 09, 2018, Helen Campbell passed away at 77 surrounded by her family. Helen worked for over 30 years as a technician in the electron microscopy and metallography laboratory in the Department of Mining and Materials Engineering. She also helped set up X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer.

She was very dedicated to her fellow technicians and to the students right until her retirement in 2012. She was always willing to help us resolve issues big and small. She was a quiet smiling anchor we could count on.

To honour her memory her family wishes donation to be made  to St-Mary’s Hospital Foundation.

MUNACA asks Ms to join its ranks

Propelled by strong interest expressed by many Ms to become unionized, MUNACA has offered to open up its certificate to include them. The PSAC has agreed to fully support us in this effort. A group of M staff who believe in the need to unionize formed a committee (the M Unionizing Committee) and started working with MUNACA and the PSAC on this. At this point the emphasis is on providing facts to all of our colleagues on the process of unionization and the advantages of forming a union. It is essential for everyone to realize that the key difference between voluntary associations and a union are the protections conferred by Quebec’s Labour Code. Fundamentally, unionization is about having more control over one’s working conditions, including salary. We encourage all staff to engage in reasoned discussions on what being a union member actually means and what it brings.

Newsletter for April 2018 now out

Vol. 1, April 2018


Salary scales, as of June 1, 2017 can be found here.

Salary scales as of June 1, 2018 are here.

You may have noticed that the Collective Agreement says the following for this year’s increase: “By the same percentage as the Quebec Government Salary Policy (April 2018) on June 1st, 2018”

This is because at the time that we were negotiating the Collective Agreement, we chose to match it to  the public sector salary increase which turned out to be 2.0%.

Most MUNACA members can verify their salary increase by comparing the step rate they had in the 2017 salary scale with the step rate (one step higher) in the June 2018 salary scale, up to the maximum of the scale.

If your PED received a Pay Equity adjustment, find your PED on the left hand column, and then look to the appropriate step. If your PED did not receive a Pay Equity adjustment, find your level (grey rows) on the left hand column, and then look to the appropriate step.

Special rules apply for some members (for example, those who are still secured on old scales) or for those who still need to forego their first progression increase in order to compensate for the Summer Fridays (see article 23.11).

Example 1: The MUNACA member works in PED 34 (Level 9, Pay Equity adjusted) and was paid at step 5 in 2017. The rate was $25.53. He will be paid at step 6 in 2018. The new rate is $26.83. This means an increase of 5.0% (2.0% for economic and 3% for progression in step).

Example 2: The MUNACA member works in PED 169 and was paid at step 12 in 2017. The rate was $32.72. She will be paid at step 12 in 2018. The new rate is $33.37. This means an increase of 2.0% (economic only since the employee is already at the maximum of the scale).

The salary increases take effect on June 1st, so members will see a small increase in their first pay (as this pay period is only partially after the increase is applied); their second pay will reflect the increase of a full pay period.
