URFA sends $1500 to striking & locked out academic workers across Canada
This week, in a gesture of solidarity, the URFA Executive Committee has voted to donate $500 each to three striking and locked out faculty associations.
Over the past two weeks, academic workers at Acadia University, the University of Lethbridge, and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology have all hit the picket lines to fight for better working conditions.
Unions across Canada have been pooling resources and making donations to help keep these unions’ strike funds strong, and URFA is proud to support these unions in their struggle for better working conditions, fair pay, manageable workloads, and diversity & inclusion on campus.
It’s important that, at times like these, we work together and show solidarity with other unions. URFA invites our members to take action by:
- Sharing this graphic on Twitter to support locked out members of the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association (ULFA)
- Sending an email to Ontario Tech’s University’s President & leadership to support striking members of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Faculty Association (UOITFA)
- Sending a letter to Acadia University’s President & leadership to support striking members of the Acadia University Faculty Association (AUFA)
