Fair Employment Week is CAUT’s annual campaign to raise awareness about precarious employment on campuses and support local organizing to improve the working conditions of contract academic staff..
FEW events that have taken place in the past include tabling, op-eds, a letter to the institution’s President, social media actions, professional development workshops, and celebrations of the contributions of contract academic staff.
Wednesday, October 20 // Social Media Day of Action
Stay tuned for shareables and ways to engage online as part of CAUT’s Social Media Day of Action.
Friday, October 22 // A Zoom social for contract academic staff
Contract academic staff from coast to coast joined in an informal Zoom social. Folks were put into breakout rooms to get to know one another, talked about the unique issues contract academic staff are experiencing, discussed strategies to improve working conditions, and joined together in celebration of the work and contributions contract academic staff make to our universities and colleges.
