This is a bit last minute, I know, but we’ve just heard through OCUFA that there will be a “$15 and Fairness” event uptown Waterloo today at lunch. This campaign should be seen as one part of a growing movement for awareness around low-income and precariously employed workers in Ontario and nation-wide. While this event may be of particular interest to Contract Faculty, the support of all would definitely be welcomed.
If you’ve got some time at lunch today, perhaps you’ll think about joining us in uptown Waterloo.
