Will you join us next Wednesday, February 12 as part of our annual Social Media Day of Action?
It’s a day for contract faculty and allies to come together to support publicly funded education and better contract faculty working conditions.
The Ford government is full of #BrokenPromises – to workers, to students, to communities.
Half of the faculty in Ontario universities work on short-term precarious contracts, often without benefits or any job security. University funding cuts don’t just mean lay-offs, they jeopardize the futures of contract faculty and their families.
The Ford government has broken its promise to not cut jobs in the public sector, including at Ontario’s universities. They have broken promises to make life affordable by making massive cuts to OSAP. They have even broken their cynical promise to “reduce red tape” by burdening Ontario’s postsecondary institutions with even more bureaucracy, including a reckless and complex new funding model and unnecessary free speech policies.
Together, we will continue the fight to push back against the Ford government, working with the public school teachers, support workers, and parents who are tired of Ford’s #BrokenPromises and cuts to our cherished public education system.
Next Wednesday, join us on Twitter and use the hashtag #BrokenPromises to tweet your stories of how the Ford government cuts are hurting public education.
