Take Action Campaign CAUT ACPPU

Take Action Campaign


In Canada, about one third of all academic staff in post-secondary
institutions are hired on a per course or limited-term basis. They
often receive inadequate compensation for only the teaching component
of academic life.

Thousands of professors are denied the opportunity each year to
participate in all aspects of academic work — scholarship, teaching
and service to the community. This has serious implications not only
for Contract Academic Staff, but for students, their regular academic
staff colleagues, and the integrity of post-secondary institutions.

CAUT advocates for the fair treatment of all academic staff regardless
of employment status, including compensation for research and service
as part of any appointment on a pro-rata basis — that is, as a
percentage of a regular professor's appointment. Tenure and academic
freedom, the ability to do research, teaching and service, the
opportunity to participate fully in institutional governance, and fair
compensation and good working conditions are things that all academic
staff should enjoy so that they can offer the best post-secondary
education possible.

CAUT is lending support to its American counterparts during walkout
day and National Adjunct Action Week. Please join us by signing our
message of solidarity and support Contract Academic Staff.
