The McMaster University academic librarians have formed a new association – the McMaster University Academic Librarians Association (MUALA) – and decided to unionize under the Ontario Labour Relations Act.

On February 10, the association filed an application for certification with the Ontario Labour Relations Board. The Board held a secret ballot vote the following week and a substantial majority of McMaster librarians voted in favour of certification

Rick Stapleton, was elected president of the new union. The other officers are Nick Ruest (vice-president), Nora Gaskin (treasurer) and Catherine Baird (secretary).
