- Andrew Robinson faces obstacles and a long fight as the first Carleton University contract instructor to try to convert to a FT position per Clause 27.3 of the Collective Agreement. Since applying, administration has isolated him from the department by threatening a TT line. Andrew writes, ❝If I can establish a precedent, then others will be able to follow at our university, but I expect max resistance.❞ He will persevere. We can support him by following and commenting on his blog (also on our blogroll) and @AndrewR_Physics on Twitter
- Next, the East Michigan University Federation of Teachers Local 9102 is petitioning EMU president to pay adjunct faculty on time ~ against a new schedule that makes them wait...and for less than on the former schedule. We posted more about them here at Precarious Faculty on Facebook. Check out, like and follow the EMUFT Facebook page for more.
