Concordia University Responds to Part-time Faculty Association (CUPFA) Pressure Tactics

    Students are asked to report to all classes during CUPFA work disruption

    MONTREAL, March 26 /CNW Telbec/ - The Concordia University Part-Time
Faculty Association (CUPFA) announced today that it has decided to employ
pressure tactics.
    On the basis of what CUPFA announced today, the university expects that
the majority of classes will not be affected. It is the university's
understanding that we will see rotating work stoppage, with a few departments
picketing at different times during the week of March 31. It also appears that
that CUPFA members who are not engaged in the picketing will continue to teach
their classes.
    At present, these disruptions do not target the final exam period,
although the university is prepared in the event that these actions continue.
Students are asked to report to classes as usual. Members of other bargaining
units and non-unionized employees have an obligation to report to work.
    During this period of course disruption, the university will do
everything in its power to ensure that students are not academically penalized
in any way. However, it is the responsibility of all students to attend their
classes and to submit required coursework as scheduled.
    Detailed information for students is available at and
will be updated as required.
