| May 1, 2017 | 0 Comments

Ontario’s public college system turns 50 this year. As Ontario celebrates that milestone, OPSEU’s College Faculty bargaining team looks at the priorities of college presidents, and proposes a different path, one that invests in students and faculty first.

Twitter Day of Action March 3 for Contract Faculty

| February 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Tweet, Post, Comment, ReTweet #Fairness4CF

On March 3, faculty, students, staff, and concerned citizens from across Ontario will engage in a day of action on Twitter to raise awareness about the need for fairness for contract faculty.

Throughout the day, university and college community members will be invited to send their Boards of Governors or College Employer Council a message about their priorities for the institution, including improving contract faculty working conditions and the quality of education offered to students.

Ontario college faculty and supporters should send your messages to the College Employer Council and its chair, Linda Franklin and Minister of Advanced Education for the Ontario government, Deb Matthews:

@LindaFranklinCO
@CollegesOntario
@ONAdvancedEd
@Deb_Matthews

For Seneca, tweet @SenecaPresident

The hashtag to use is: #Fairness4CF

Sample messages:

#Fairness4CF Fairness for contract faculty means equal access to benefits.
It’s time for respect! @CollegesOntario

#Fairness4CF Faculty working conditions are students learning conditions.
@LindaFranklinCO

#Fairness4CF Contract faculty deserve equal pay for work of equal value, job security, and access to benefits.@Deb_Matthews

You can also post these messages on your Facebook and/or post to Contract Faculty Forward Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/contractfacultyforward/

Our contract faculty colleagues need your support. Tell the Council and the Ministry that part time faculty deserve fair treatment.

Fairness for Contract Faculty

| February 11, 2016 | 0 Comments

Contract faculty deserve equal pay for equal work, yet the colleges continue to exploit them by paying as little as possible. Furthermore, our part-time faculty live under a constant threat of losing their positions entirely should they “rock the boat”. These dedicated faculty should be treated with respect and paid accordingly.
