For decades, shared governance has been at the heart of how universities run.
In fact, university boards are typically mandated by law to include relevant stakeholders (academic staff, administrators, students and members of the public) in their decision-making process. Watch the video! https://youtu.be/gvZcFB0RxAE
The Welcoming Ceremony.
Fair Employment Week is October 7 to 11, 2019. CAUT members across Canada are hosting events on campus to support fair treatment of all academic staff.
I express my support to those who stand for the fair treatment of all academic staff regardless of employment status. All professors should receive fair compensation for teaching, research and service.
Each year, thousands of academics are hired on precarious contracts with poor working conditions. We can do better.
Make it fair.
