Calling All Sessional Instructors! Sessionals at UW are Unionizing, and we're stoked! Find out how, why, and what this means for each of us. Come meet the OrganizeUW Sessional Team you've been hearing from via email, plus other sessionals who are already unionized and can tell you all about it. There'll be refreshments, door prizes, and lots of fun, because – heh – it’s on a Monday.
Join members of UWaterloo’s Faculty to learn about the ways in which their research and participation in academia fosters support for union presence at their home institution, as well as how unionization efforts can enhance course delivery and research at UWaterloo.
Who is OrganizeUW? What happens once TAs, RAs, and sessionals unionize? Could student-faculty relationships be impacted? How can faculty best offer support? As a prof, lecturer, or other faculty member, you may be wondering what unionization would look like at UW and how it could impact you. In our new guest post on the FAUW Blog we work to directly address such questions and concerns. We also list some easy ways you can help, including spreading the word and filling in our quick form to register your support. Click here for the link to the full post!
Join us as we go live with the GSA to ask common questions about the graduate student-led union drive on campus.
