Striking McGill support staff pickets at Loyola
The McGill University Non-Academic Certified Association formed a picket line outside of Concordia’s PERFORM Centre on Sherbrooke Street last Friday. Handing out informational pamphlets with an image of McGill principal Heather Munroe-Blum on them, MUNACA was at Loyola the same day as the inauguration of the university’s PERFORM and Genomics centres. In an interview, MUNACA’s VP finance David Kalant said that the workers’ union chose to protest at Loyola because they had heard that politicians would be attending the PERFORM Centre’s inauguration. Kalant said the workers’ union also came out to support Concordia’s trades union, which held a one-day strike on Sept. 7.
