  • Dan McKeown (Chief Spokesperson)
  • Jim Banting (Assistant Vice Principle, Office of the Vice Principle Research)
  • Lynda Jessup (Associate Dean, Graduate Studies and Research)
  • Jada McNaughton (Senior Labour Relations Advisor, Faculty Relations)
  • James Reynolds (Associate Dean, School of Graduate Studies)

  • Craig Berggold (President, PSAC Local 901 – Cultural Studies)
  • Suhaylah Sequeira (Vice President Research Assistants, PSAC Local 901 – Chemistry)

Our next meeting with the employer will take place on August 16th, 2018.
