Your Resources & Work Conditions During COVID-19

In this time of health crisis, the Administration has announced that the majority of courses for the Winter 2021 session will once again be offered entirely online.

We recognize the commitment and dedication you have shown to ensuring quality education. We also understand that for most of you, the fall session was the first session in which you were asked to deliver a course entirely online.

To better understand how you are coping with this reality and to negotiate better working conditions on your behalf, we ask you to complete this survey, which should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Take part in our survey here.

On the Other Side of the Screen.

We love the University of Manitoba Faculty Assocation’s (UMFA) current campaign on Twitter to raise awareness on the reality of working at a distance to the administration.
There are so many things to do before being able to work at home. In solidarity with UMFA, APTPUO invites you to send us a photo of your workspace

Your photo can be shared on our Twitter page to demonstrate the reality of what is on the other side of the screen.

Take part in the forums!
