LUMUN`s collective agreement with Memorial University expired more than a year ago and the union is negotiating a new agreement with the university. Despite the new revenues that were paid to the university this year as a result of a series of juicy tuition increases, Wells warns that much of the money is being spent on administrative expenses and does not improve teaching conditions.
