The CAUT Executive Committee has set up a working group on part-time faculty. The five-member group is comprised of one representative from each of the four standing committees and the President. Members are: Linda Paul (Status of Women, Regina -- Chair), Ruth Sheeran (Librarians, Bishop's), Gary Tompkins (Collective Bargaining & Economic Benefits, Regina), Pat Grassick (Academic Freedom & Tenure, Calgary) and Bill Bruneau (CAUT President, UBC).
Ms. Nancy Sennema from the University of Windsor Faculty Association will be providing advice and assistance to the working group. Ms. Sennema has broad knowledge and experience with the issues facing part-time faculty at Windsor.
The working group aims to produce an discussion paper, prepare draft contract language addressing the needs of part-time faculty, review relevant CAUT policy, and make specific recommendations for action.
