On February 28, faculty, staff, and students from across Ontario will participate in OCUFA’s annual social media day of action in support of fairness for contract faculty and other precariously employed campus workers. In the lead-up to the provincial election in June, it will be an exciting opportunity to build upon the momentum generated by the advocacy and organizing work that led to recent improvements to Ontario labour law.
Everyone is invited to participate. On the day of action, you’re encouraged to use social media to tag your local election candidates in a tweet or post and highlight:
- the priorities for contract faculty;
- the need to close gaps in Bill 148; and
- the steps candidates should take to show their support.
In addition to candidates, you’re also encouraged to tag your university. Make sure to use the hashtag #Fairness4CF for maximum impact.
For more information on how to get involved, contact OCUFA’s Engagement and Campaigns Coordinator Alexandra Pinosa at APinosa@ocufa.on.ca.
