MUNFA Strike Enters Second Day

More than 800 MUNFA members took to the pickets Monday morning for the second day of strike operations at Memorial University.

Carolyn Walsh, an associate professor and head of the strike, hopes the strike won’t last too long, but staff are gearing up for the long haul.

She says MUNFA is ready to return to the table at any time.

Inside the university, the corridors, usually filled with thousands of students, were bare.

Classes taught by professors not represented on the faculty council are still open, and those staff and students are forced to cross picket lines set up at multiple entrances on campus.

Students stopped by to offer support and hot coffee throughout the first day, according to strike captain and professor Scott Harding.

He says he only gets support from students who share their frustration with how MUNFA has been funded and treated.
