Oct 1, 2010: CBUFA will present Dr. Michael Manson with CAUT’s Dedicated Service Award.

An Invitation to Members, Retirees, & Guests of the Cape Breton Faculty Association

You’re invited to the Membertou Trade & Convention Centre Friday October 1, 2010 as we celebrate tenacity, dedication, commitment and service.

Dr. Michael Manson worked tirelessly for the UCCBFAUT and the CBUFA from the time of his arrival in 1977 until his retirement in 2005. During this time, he held every senior position in our Faculty Association, including thirteen years as President.
His second tenure as Association President saw Mike supporting our Association as our sole Grievance Officer and our Chief Negotiator. It was largely through his efforts that we secured our first Collective Agreement after a long and bitter five week strike in the winter of 2000.
Dr. Manson was fully engaged in association work at the provincial level. This included five years as President of the former Nova Scotia Confederation of University Faculty Association (NSCUFA) and then as both Secretary and Vice-President of its successor organization, the Association of Nova Scotia University Teachers (ANSUT). It should be noted that at the time Dr. Manson served in these capacities, there was absolutely no course release or stipendiary benefits for the positions.
A resume of Dr. Manson’s work within the faculty union movement fails to capture the force that was and is Michael Manson:  he was the heart and soul of our Faculty Association.
