The University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) has been working hard to negotiate a fair deal with the university administration. Years of budget cuts have left teachers and researchers over-worked and under-supported.
Contract faculty at Western deserve job security. Just a few days ago, three very popular faculty members did not have their contracts renewed in the Department of History. This happened, despite the fact that, over the last six years, Western has accrued over half a billion dollars in operating budget surpluses.
UWOFA is fighting for meaningful job security for contract faculty and fair compensation for all faculty members, but time is running out.
Help UWOFA avoid a strike.
