PER-COURSE INSTRUCTORS AT MUN HAVE NO HEALTH BENEFITS
PLEASE HELP AN INSTRUCTOR IN NEED
A per-course instructor in Biochemistry, Elaine Dodge Lynch, has been in hospital for nearly two months, recovering from a life-threatening bacterial infection. She has undergone multiple amputations as a result and needs prostheses. Her husband has established a GoFundMe site, hoping to defray the hefty costs for the devices and for medical travel.
Please read her story at this link and consider contributing to the fund. No amount is too small.
The Lecturers' Union of Memorial University of Newfoundland (LUMUN) was accredited as a union representing per-course instructors at MUN by the Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Relations Board in December 2006.
A first Collective Agreement between LUMUN and the University was ratified in February 2009.
On 26 April 2012, LUMUN was certified to represent Postdoctoral Fellows at MUN.
The postdoctoral fellows ratified their first collective agreement on 15 January 2014.
The per-course instructors ratified their second collective agreement on 27 March 2014.
LUMUN is affiliated with the Public Service Alliance of Canada and with the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour.
