MEDIA ALERT – CBC Sunday Edition documentary on Precarious Faculty

September 9th, 2014

Hi all;

 

As you may know, CBC’s Sunday Edition played a radio documentary this weekend examining the issue of precarious academic work. It’s a challenging and important piece, and something you may wish to share with your networks.

 

The documentary can be found at:  http://www.cbc.ca/thesundayedition/documentaries/2014/09/07/class-struggle/

 

There is also some text on the OCUFA site that, with some minor revisions, can be re-purposed for your own websites. Please feel free to copy and edit as needed: http://ocufa.on.ca/blog-posts/faculty/tune-in-sunday-to-a-cbc-radio-documentary-on-precarious-faculty/

 

Sue Ferguson, from WLUFA, has asked people to consider leaving a message of support in the comments section of the CBC page, which can be accessed at the link above.

 

Thanks,

Graeme
