CUPE 3912 Membership Engagement Survey 2018

We are starting a mobilization campaign to increase member participation in CUPE 3912 activities and at events. The first step is a survey to assess reasons for non-participation and to help us determine how we can improve the timing, frequency and type of events and activities.

Please help us by completing this very short survey (approx. 5 minutes) by March 5, 2018. This link takes you to the password-protected members only page where you can access the link to the survey. The password is the same as the precedence lists password and those that have been emailed out for other members-only areas. Please send an email to webmaster.3912@gmail.com if you have lost the password.

Fair Employment Week

Fair Employment Week is coming Oct. 23-27!

Fair Employment Week is part of a CAUT-sponsored initiative called Make It Fair”. The premise of this initiative is that the tenuous and often stressful nature of part-time academic work leads not only to unfair working conditions for those academics living and working in part-time purgatory, but it also has serious implications for the quality and integrity of our post-secondary education in general. In order to address these concerns we need to work together to improve the job security and working conditions of contract faculty.
