Town Hall on McGill’s Restructuring Plan

Town Hall on McGill’s Restructuring Plan
The McGill Administration is planning to restructure support staff in 14 departments. Join us for a larger conversation between stakeholders on the second week of the Winter semester. We hope to listen to staff, faculty and students in order to promote awareness and build solidarity in our efforts to stop the forced relocation of our departmental staff. The meeting will run on January 14 from 17:35-19:25 in Arts W-215. All are welcome. There will be an open discussion period in addition to designated time for speakers from the diverse groups affected by the restructuring. Our open letter was published in the McGill Daily on Nov. 25th. You can still support this letter by adding your signature–see the updates section the SOS-McGill website for more info:
