Marc Bousquet to Contingent Academics Mailing List:
Higher ed working conditions are the topic of two of the five finalists for LaborStart's first ever Labor Video of the Year competition. Both are real contenders for winning. My top choice is the super-clever, frequently hilarious series of strike ads for CUPE 3903, representing grad student and contingent faculty who do half of all the teaching at York University, a major research institution in Canada.
