The Fédération nationale des enseignantes et des enseignants du Québec (FNEEQ-CSN) is pleased to welcome a new union from the college sector to its ranks. Teachers from Marianopolis College, a more than century-old post-secondary institution in Montréal, sought FNEEQ affiliation and were granted union certification by the Labour Commissioner this past April 16th. This is the ninth union from the private college level to join the federation.
Employees of Queen of Angels Academy were informed late last week that the Dorval private girls’ school will be closing its doors at the end of the 2013-2014 academic year.
Caroline Quesnel, FNEEQ vice-president responsible for the private sector, deplores the fact that this decision was presented to the school’s teachers and support staff as a done deal.
