Fair Employment Week is an annual event organized by the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT), which provides a great opportunity to raise awareness about precarious contract working conditions on university campuses. Across Canada, faculty associations will be showing their support for fairness for contract faculty and advocating for universities to provide good jobs that include job security, access to benefits, and fair pay.
In addition to information tables aimed at students and faculty members, Ontario faculty associations will be holding events, networking with other campus and community groups and working to bring these important issues to a broader audience in campus and community newspapers.
This year’s Fair Employment Week will take place October 22–26. If you are thinking about organizing an event, or are interested in finding out more, please don’t hesitate to contact OCUFA’s Engagement and Campaigns Coordinator, Andrea Calver.
