A Fair First Contract for McMaster University’s Post-Doctoral Fellows

We are about 130 post-doctoral fellows (PDF) working for McMaster University. We recently organized and joined CUPE 3906, which also represents Teaching Assistants and Sessional Faculty at McMaster, to improve our working and earning conditions.

For the past eight months, we’ve been negotiating with McMaster administration to achieve our first contract. Our goal is simple: a fair contract that includes a fair and competitive wage, benefits that other McMaster University staff are entitled to and professional development support that will further enhance McMaster University’s research reputation.

Please help us achieve a fair first contract. Take a moment to send an e-mail to the Provost, Dean of Graduate Studies and Lisa Newton in Employee Relations provost@mcmaster.ca, deangrad@mcmaster.ca and lnewton@mcmaster.ca. Tell the McMaster Administration that you support CUPE 3906 post-doctoral fellows in their quest to achieve a fair first contract.

Send an electronic letter to the McMaster administration supporting our call for a fair first contract!
