Fair Employment Week

It’s Fair Employment Week! This national campaign recognizes the plight of contract faculty working in Canadian Universities and Colleges, and coincides with Campus Equity Week in the United States and Mexico. During this time, post-secondary academic unions participate by focusing on advancing the cause of Non-Regular Faculty by highlighting the issues affecting this employee group. In Universities and Colleges across Canada, the plight of Contract Academic Workers is being heard through publications and websites, information booths, rallies, and one-on-one discussions. The intent of this week is a North America-wide effort to ensure that non-regular faculty have the same rights, benefits and protections as regular faculty members have. Many other institutions don’t have the working conditions and regularization language we have at College of the Rockies. Take this time to reach out to our Non-Regular Faculty, get to know them, ask questions, and show some support! http://makeitfair.caut.ca/...
