UWaterloo sessional instructors join CUPE


At the University of Waterloo, sessional instructors have officially joined the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). The decision at the Ontario Labour Relations Board follows a vote in December. “Waterloo is a great, world-class university, but as instructors we’re way behind other universities in this province,” said organizing sessional instructor Scott Sorli. “It’s time to bring us up to standards for things like employment security, benefits, professional development and basics like appropriate office space and equipment.” The Financial Post notes that the decision closely follows similar votes at Brock University and the University of Toronto’s New College.
