Elevator Access in Arts & Administration Building

In October 2019, MUNFA was made aware of accessibility concerns in the Arts & Administration Building due to the fact that there was no longer a functioning elevator to the 5th floor of the building. MUNFA raised these concerns with the University Administration and requested a timeline outlining when members of the University community could expect the elevator to be repaired.

MUNFA subsequently filed an Association Grievance contending that the University was violating the Collective Agreement by not providing equitable access throughout the Arts & Administration Building.

It is MUNFA’s current understanding that repairs to the elevator may take upwards of two years, meaning the 5th floor of the building will be inaccessible by elevator for a significant period of time. If you have been impacted by the lack of a functioning elevator, or anticipate being impacted in the future, please let us know by contacting the MUNFA Office, munfa@mun.ca.
