OCUFA meets with PC Critic Rob Leone

| Comment

On November 28, 2012, OCUFA President Constance Adamson met with Rob Leone, MPP for Cambridge and PC Critic for Training, Colleges, and Universities. The purpose of the meeting was to provide the faculty perspective on higher education issues for an upcoming Tory white paper.
 
During the meeting, Adamson highlighted the need for teaching and research to remain connected, and to ensure that student success is at the heart of any credit transfer, online learning, or credential reform. In addition, the urgent need for public investment in Ontario’s universities was discussed.
 
Adamson also expressed OCUFA’s opposition to ideas contained within the Tories’ recently released whitepapers on pension reform and labour laws. OCUFA strongly believes that pension reform should be driven by employees, and that protection for workers must remain strong in Ontario.
 
It is not clear when the higher education whitepaper will be released. OCUFA plans to thoroughly analyze the proposals it contains, and will be providing feedback directly to Mr. Leone.
