Seeking Volunteers for the Grenfell Campus Academic Freedom & Grievance Committee

MUNFA is seeking expressions of interest for volunteers to serve on the Grenfell Campus Academic Freedom and Grievance Committee (GC AF&G). We especially encourage members of equity-deserving groups to volunteer.

Please note that as per Clause 1.20 of the MUN/MUNFA Collective Agreement, “An ASM’s service to the Association shall be deemed academic service as set out in the appropriate articles in this Collective Agreement.”

The GC AF&G Committee’s primary functions are: 

  • To assist and advise members of the MUNFA bargaining unit in the protection of their rights under the collective agreement. 
  • To prepare individual grievance cases and to represent grievers before administrative and arbitral committees.
  • To monitor the state of academic freedom within the university; to promote awareness of academic freedom issues; and to make policy recommendations to the Executive Committee.

There is a separate but linked committee at the St. John’s campus.

MUNFA members on the Grenfell Campus who are interested in serving on this committee should sign and return this form to the MUNFA office by emailing it to Any member may suggest another person for this committee. Please return this form (linked above) by April 28, 2023.
