I graduated from this institution. Twice. And the truly ironic element is what McGill taught me while I studied Industrial Relations and then Law. My lessons are clearly not reflected in their actions now.
I'm ashamed to be associated with an institution that shows such contempt for its employees that it has forced them to the curb just to achieve what other workers in similar positions in other universities in Québec already have. I'm embarrassed to be identified with an organization which ought to value free speech, but which has pursued a series of injunctions to silence and distance its striking employees.
I'm not going to bring McGill to its knees with my refusal to donate to the Alma Mater Fund during the strike, but I want to make a point. If you are going to run roughshod over the rights of your employees and their reasonable expectations with respect to their working conditions, you will not have the benefit of my generosity, however small that might seem to you.
I hope I'm not alone.
