Inter-Union Council


The Concordia University Inter-Union Council (IUC) is composed of the presidents of the staff and faculty unions and associations at Concordia. The council first met in January 1995. In 2007, CUFA, the union of full-time professors, and TRAC, the newly formed union of teaching and research assistants, joined the IUC.

The overall objective of IUC is to improve the working conditions of its members within the context of Concordia’s mission. By fostering communication among unions, exchanging information, working together on common issues and coordinating efforts and actions, the IUC has been effective in defending the collective rights of Concordia staff and faculty.

The Council meets monthly during the academic year. Periodically, the IUC also meets with senior Concordia administrators to discuss issues of common concern. As it is an informal body, decisions are taken by consensus.
