Are you a Per-Course Instructor at MUN?
Why not come out to meet other PCIs and help mobilize the membership before bargaining begins in the Fall?
The LUMUN collective agreement expires in August. In preparation for fall bargaining we are inviting you to join the LUMUN Mobilization Committee for PCIs.
If you are interested in working with us to strengthen the network of per course instructors at MUN, please let us know by April 29, by contacting the LUMUN office @ 864-7054 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mobilization Committee will meet again in mid-May, and we hope you will join us!
LUMUN SPEAKING OUT AGAINST PROVINCIAL BUDGET
PER-COURSE INSTRUCTORS AT MUN HAVE NO HEALTH BENEFITS
PLEASE HELP AN INSTRUCTOR IN NEED
A per-course instructor in Biochemistry, Elaine Dodge Lynch, is still 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.
