Job Security

Don’t leave home without it!

Through the membership survey, you identified job security as a pressing and vital concern.  Management is eroding our jobs by hiring more and more part-time teachers instead of full-time and partial-load faculty, by outsourcing academic work to private colleges, and by refusing to hire full-time faculty when full-time work is available.

Through your demands you have told your bargaining team that you need assurance and confidence that your work will continue.

Steps to Job Security

  1. Ensure academic work at the colleges is performed by faculty (professors, instructors, librarians, and counsellors).
  2. Protect full-time and partial-load faculty jobs from being contracted out or privatized.
  3. Compel the colleges to give preference to the hiring of full-time and partial-load faculty.
  4. Provide more stable, predictable employment for partial-load faculty.
  5. Improve partial-load faculty’s access to full-time positions in recognition of their value and experience teaching in the colleges.
  6. Ensure that alternate academic workloads can be more easily found by members facing layoffs.
