Information for employees

Updated: March 10, 2024, 11:30 p.m.

The negotiating teams for Memorial University and the Lecturers' Union of Memorial University of Newfoundland (LUMUN) have reached a tentative agreement on March 10, 2024.

All classess and scheduled activities will proceed as scheduled on Monday, March 11. More information can be found . 

Update on what a positive strike vote means for employees:

  • Approximately 13 per cent of courses at the St. John’s and Grenfell campuses are taught by LUMUN members. These courses, both online and in person, would be paused for the duration of the job action.
  • In general, all courses taught by non-LUMUN members will go ahead. This includes all courses at the Marine Institute as their instructors are represented by a different union.
  • LUMUN members who hold multiple roles at Memorial, such as graduate students or employees, will continue their non-LUMUN responsibilities.  
  • Student residences and food services will remain in operation.
