MUNACA “funeral march for free speech” comes by Concordia

The McGill University Non-Academic Certified Association marched down Ste-Catherine Street to Concordia’s Sir George Williams campus on Friday. Carrying black banners that declared their “funeral march for free speech,” the strikers chanted “Take Back Di Grappa!” referring to former Concordia VP services Michael Di Grappa, who left the university last fall to take up the position of VP administration and finance at McGill. Di Grappa has been the main public administrative opposition to MUNACA’s demands for pay increases, more benefits, and better pensions.

There is a mistake in your caption. MUNACA is not asking for more benefits and better pensions, they merely want to preserve them! McGill University has already hacked benefits to save pennies, and now it wants to do more hacking, for more pennies…
