CAUT Welcomes Newest Member

CAUT’s April Council has welcomed the Osgoode Hall Faculty Association as its newest member. Osgoode is CAUT’s 73rd local member association that together with three federated associations means CAUT represents more than 68,000 academic and general staff at 124 universities and colleges across the country.

OHFA has been in operation since the mid-1960s and represents about 50 tenured and tenure-track academic staff at Osgoode Hall Law School, a constituent faculty of York University.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Osgoode Hall Faculty Association,” said CAUT executive director James Turk, “especially after their recent stand in defence of academic integrity by refusing to be part of a badly flawed agreement signed by York and the private think tank, the Centre for International Governance Innovation. The courage and determination of the faculty association’s members in that fight is a model for all academic staff in Canada.”
