MUN Students' Union advocating for fair work terms

The MUN Students' Union is sounding the alarm over work terms that pay less than minimum wage.

In a petition delivered to the administration, MUNSU is advocating for fair wages, effective work term placements and the elimination of differential fees in the Engineering Department to the leadership of Memorial University.

The recommended changes state that both local and international students, only pay a fee of $600 for each work term, work term placements must pay students an hourly wage of at least the provincial minimum wage, and work term placements must be somewhat relevant to engineering.

This petition contains 797 student signatures.

Interim President Dr. Bose committed to discussing the demands with the advisory committee to the President and pursuing reform of the co-op office practices at Memorial.
