MUNACA Occupying Montreal For McGill Homecoming

MUNACA, the union representing 1,700 striking McGill support staff will be present in different locations in Montreal this weekend echoing the same message being voiced by the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Both are fighting for transparency, accountability, fairness and equality. MUNACA members, who have been without a contract for a year, are seeking parity with other university workers in Montreal, protection of their pensions, and implementation of a fair wage scale.

During the McGill Homecoming this weekend, MUNACA will be disrupting a series of events urging McGill's big donors to withhold donations until the dispute is resolved fairly.

Montreal, 20 August 2011 -- In light of two images directly linking Calgary-based Suncor energy company to the Syrian regime, the Collective for Syria in Montreal is calling on Suncor CEO Richard L. George to explain remarks made on CBC's The Current yesterday.
