A political scientist at Concordia University since 1992, he also has more than a decade of experience in negotiations and labour relations with the Concordia Part-time Faculty Association. Since 1994 Pierre has been the association's grievance officer and since 1997 has served as CUPFA's vice-president external. In addition to his academic credentials, he holds a certificate in industrial relations from Queen's University. He has been a media commentator for CJAD Radio-Montreal and for CBC Radio.
Pierre is bilingual and will be providing collective bargaining assistance to CAUT member associations in addition to being responsible for publication of the CAUT Facts and Figures series and overseeing CAUT's collective bargaining database.
He will be working at CAUT two days a week until he completes his teaching obligations at Concordia in late April.
