Solidarity with the University of Manitoba Faculty Association

(November 8, 2016) LUFA Secretary-Treasurer Jean-Charles Cachon was in Winnipeg on Friday to show solidarity with the University of Manitoba Faculty Association, which has been on strike since Nov. 1 (see the photo below of Cachon holding the LUFA sign, taken in front of university’s administration building where the president’s office is located). He also presented a cheque on LUFA’s behalf for $2,000. Cachon is a trustee of the CAUT Defence Fund, which organizes solidarity picket visits (“Flying Pickets”) by faculty association reps from across Canada during job actions.
