There are a number of ongoing grievances that the Association is pursuing with the Employer. Our grievance team, including our new Chair, Grievance Policy and Administration Adam Barrows, will continue to work hard over the summer to reach resolutions.
CUASA will be meeting with the Employer on Thursday, July 25 to discuss the grievance we filed following interference from the Provost's Office in the development of unit standards for tenure and promotion. CUASA feels that each unit should have the opportunity to develop criteria that accurately reflect the work done by members of their discipline. We hope to have an update on this situation for units soon.
Aside from this grievance, the grievance team is working on a number of other cases including a bargaining unit scope grievance, several cases of harassment, and a transfer of rank issue.
We Are CUASA Campaign
This fall, CUASA will be launching the We Are CUASA campaign designed to increase awareness of faculty issues on campus. The campaign will focus on the role of faculty and CUASA on campus. It will include posters, a website with features on individual faculty members and community outreach. It is modelled after the OFL's We Are Ontario and OCUFA's We Teach Ontario campaigns.
If you'd like to get involved, contact Daniel in the CUASA Office.
CUASA will be at two events before the end of the summer:
August 25 - Capital Pride Parade
September 2 - Labour Day Picnic and Parade
We encourage all of our members to attend and participate. Look for more information coming soon or contact Daniel in the CUASA Office to sign up!
