PSAC 77000

Postdoctoral Union

Carleton University


PSAC Local 77000, also known as the Carleton University Postdoctoral Union (CUPU), represents postdoctoral fellows whose internal funding is equal or greater than 50% of the minimum annual salary stipulated in the collective agreement or its pro-rated equivalent. We are postdocs like you who work to uphold and improve our working conditions.

The work of the Local is done through an Executive Committee made up of peers who we elect at general membership meetings.


As a member of PSAC Local 77000, you can enjoy a number of benefits.

Some benefits, such as annual salary increases, apply automatically to every postdoctoral fellow.

Other benefits require an application:

  • Professional Development Fund
  • Tuition Waiver
