It is crucial that as many MacEwan University Sessional Faculty (MUSF) as possible attend the Grant MacEwan University Faculty Association (GMUFA) Annual General Meeting (AGM) this year. Up for discussion: GMUFA Bylaws, Strike and Lockout Principles, Election Protocols, and Negotiation Proposals. An increase in membership dues may also be voted on.
The MacEwan University Sessional Steering Collaborative (MUSSC) has heard from a range of reliable sources that, thanks to pressure from the provincial government, the “red-circling” of those MacEwan University Sessional Faculty (MUSF) subject to pay cuts this coming July 1 may indeed be going ahead.
MUSSC — with its slightly revised name the MacEwan University Sessional Steering Collaborative — is launching its new website today! Please sign on to review our mission statement and the other materials generated over the first year of our activism, to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and to receive regular updates on important developments and upcoming events.
Sessional Faculty between contracts at the University of Alberta will be able to: vote on any matter, including ratifying new collective agreements and elections of officers, and be nominated for and elected to any elected position in the Association subject to eligibility requirements; serve on Association committees; and receive all the rights and benefits of membership for up to one year after their contracts end with the University of Alberta.
