Faculty Town Hall!

Now that the Bargaining Committee has been formed, it is time to gather your comments and suggestions for the upcoming negotiations.

  • What are the issues for part-time faculty in your unit?
  • What do you think our bargaining priorities should be?
  • What improvements do you suggest in terms of governance?

This year we have decided to hold Town Hall meetings in each of the faculties to discuss the next round of bargaining.

Stay tuned as we will be sharing the dates soon. 

As usual, a survey on bargaining priorities will be shared with all members.
