Elected, but alas

Erik Eklund’s election as staff rep on the Federation U council last week was announced last week

And now the professor of history is declared redundant, presumably a casualty of a restructure in Humanities and Social Sciences, underway before this week’s announcement of university-wide voluntary redundancies.

So, what happens re Eklund’s election, CMM asked the university which replied that a staffer must be employed .5 FTE or more to be a council member.

So that’s that for a popular professor trusted by staff to act in the university’s best interests.
