Dear members,

Two of our fellow McGill unions, AGSEM (teaching assistants) and MCLIU (course lecturers), will be holding a rally in support of their bargaining demands in front of the James Administration Building, Wednesday, March 20th, at noon (12:00PM). With AGSEM’s strike vote having passed with an overwhelming majority, it is important that we turn out to support their cause. Your MUNACA officials will be attending in solidarity, so come join us and show McGill what union power looks like! 

In Solidarity,


Dear members, 

The Executive of the Association of McGill Professors of Law (AMPL) has called a one-day strike tomorrow, Tuesday February 13. You can find the AMPL’s full statement here on why the strike action is necessary.

We stand in solidarity with the AMPL and believe every worker has a right to fair wages and working conditions. We remind you that per our Collective Agreement, as members, you have the right to choose to not cross a picket line:

Article 18.02 If an employee believes that, as a matter of conscience, they cannot cross a picket line, this act of conscience will be respected, and no penalty will be imposed other than non-payment for the period during which services were not rendered. Employees who take that position will be expected to so advise their supervisor, department head or chair, as the case may be, and arrangements will be made to deduct the appropriate amounts from their salaries

For any questions about the AMPL’s strike action please reach out to: (AMPL President) 

For any questions about your rights to not cross a picket line (Article 18) or other MUNACA-related questions please reach out to

In solidarity,

The Bargaining Priorities Survey for the upcoming round of negotiations is now live and awaiting your responses.

We strongly encourage all members to fill out the survey in either English or French. All responses will be used to set the demands for this round of negotiations. It is important that you and your coworkers identify your needs and priorities for strong and representative negotiations. Please check your McGill inbox for links to the survey.

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and aims to ask about all facets of the Collective Agreement. You can start the survey, save your results and finish it later. However please submit it by Monday, February 5th, 2024 when the Negotiations Committee will begin compiling responses.

The results will be presented for review and approval to the membership in a Special General Meeting in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send them to

In solidarity,
The MUNACA Negotiations Committee
