If you're on one of our committees or the Council of Representatives, or otherwise have volunteered for FAUW this year, mark the afternoon of June 25 in your calendar for our Volunteer Appreciation Party! Keep an eye out for details in your inbox later this month.
FAUW will be recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21) and Indigenous History Month (June) by holding a faculty reading circle on Indigeneity and the University.
Join us June 22, 2:30-4:30 in the Board Room on the second floor of the Grad House. We’ll provide snacks and reading materials – a selection of recent brief public statements about Indigenous initiatives in academe. At the reading circle, we’ll read through them together and discuss how we think they apply to the University of Waterloo.
If you prefer, you can access the materials in advance:
On June 16, the Fight for $15 & Fairness campaign and the Ontario Federation of Labour are hosting a rally for decent work. OCUFA is organizing a faculty contingent to join the rally. No matter who wins this provincial election, it is crucial that faculty continue to defend decent work and keep the pressure on government to deliver fairness for contract faculty through the implementation of new legislation and robust public funding for universities.
