It is Fair Employment Week from October 16-20, when we raise awareness of the work of Adjunct contract faculty. QUFA has organized some events throughout the week that we hope you can attend. We have also included a series of posters you can put up to show support (see below).
To learn more about Fair Employment Week, visit the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA).
