Illegal Lock Out of Sessional Lecturers

Sessional lecturers at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières are locked out of Summer Session. This illegal lock-out targets the instructors in the École internationale de français, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, who are heavily represented on the bargaining team and executive of the union. The lock-out has caused lay offs of cafeteria workers and other support staffers. Local businesses are also suffering because the 900 EIF students are not in Trois-Rivières this summer.
