Members of support staff unions at Mount Allison University will show their support for striking faculty by joining in a sympathy picket on Thursday January 28. These supporters will join faculty from universites across Canada (Manitoba, Acadia, York, Mount St.Vincent, Carleton, UNB and others) to support demands of the Mount Allison Faculty Association for wage parity with other small universities. Salaries for faculty at Mount Allison are among the lowest in the country. According to President George De Benedetti, “MAFA’s salary demands would raise wages at Mount Allison to only the middle of the group of comparable institutions.” The strike is in its seventh day.
