Faculty Discussion Series on Unionization #5: Faculty of Mathematics


Organize uWaterloo and CUPE in partnership with students in the Faculty of Mathematics are pleased to present the next town hall in our Discussion Series on Unionization. First the guests will give brief remarks identifying workplace issues in the faculty and outlining the role of unions to address them. Then the floor will be open for discussion, including questions and concerns from audience members. Finally, we’ll turn to brainstorming issues/concerns in the department that we’d like to see addressed to improve our graduate student workplace. All graduate students in math-related areas are welcome!
