"The Association of McGill University Support Employees (AMUSE-PSAC) and their Unit B Floor Fellows have now been in negotiations for over 18 months. Our collective agreement expired in 2020.
In recent months, McGill University has failed to provide Floor Fellows with a decent rate of pay. Among other key demands, the employer is refusing any retroactive pay and do not want to adjust the meal plan to reflect current food prices.
On March 7th, AMUSE-PSAC held a strike vote to which the members voted in favor at 84%.
This is our last attempt to get McGill University to consider treating the Floor Fellows equally and fairly by giving us a fair contract before a strike."*
Edit: As of March 18th, McGill Floor Fellows officially began the strike. Please support the strike – follow AMUSE on social media to get updates on upcoming solidarity events:
