We won a new fund for Postdoctoral Fellows–a Professional Development Fund in our most recent round of contract negotiations.

Your benefits committee recently vote to increase the entitlement to $300 per academic year (subject to the availability of funds). It was previously $150 per year.

The fund is currently limited to conference participation, professional association fees, and academic books.

You must currently be working as a CUPE 3906 Unit 3 Postdoc at McMaster to access the funds.

For additional information, please contact our Benefits Officer at benefits@cupe3906.org.

Please note that we cannot accept digital/e-mailed submissions.  Applications should be dropped off at or mailed to the CUPE 3906 Office (Kenneth Taylor Hall Room B111) with appropriate receipts and/or supporting documentation.  Thank you!
