We met with Mark Rosenfeld, Cheryl Athersych, and Brynne Sinclair-Waters from our sponsors OCUFA (Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations). In correlation with OCUFA’s mandate, we discussed both labour issues for faculty and the future of the university system.
OCUFA provided an overview of their members’ labour interests, precarious work, impacts of Bills 148 and 142, polling, and bargaining. Of particular interest to us were debates around online education, university participation rates, and university funding and funding models. We also examined OCUFA’s wide array of publications and policy briefs.
Thank you OCUFA for your continued support of OLIP!
