Solidarity with AMPL

In the last few weeks, solidarity with striking Association of McGill Professors of Law (AMPL) members has been tangible as various academic bodies altered plans for this year’s Congress, June 12 to 21, 2024, hosted by McGill University.

Organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress is the largest academic gathering in Canada, and one of the largest in the world. Congress, now in its 93rd year, brings together approximately 55 academic associations representing disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Several academic associations took the advice of AMPL and canceled or moved their events off Campus. Many others, including the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities issued public statements of support for colleagues walking the picket lines. The University of Manitoba Faculty Association sent a message to members advising them not to cross AMPL picket lines. Read the UMFA message to members attending Congress.

The USFA continues to support AMPL members in their strike action in pursuit of a collective agreement.
