Did you know...
that in many Ontario colleges, over half of all courses are taught by contract faculty who lack job security, fair wages and benefits. These faculty are dedicated educators with the same qualifications as full-time faculty, but the precarious nature of contract work means that many struggle to make ends meet.
What You Can Do:
1) Sign the Petition calling on Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, to end precarious contract jobs for college faculty.
2) Sign Up to support good jobs for ALL college faculty.
