Ottawa, ON K1N 9H4


This fast-paced, day-long workshop is focused on encouraging a new generation of academic staff to become involved in their associations. The event happens in Ottawa the day before CAUT November Council and features a mix of open discussion, small group work and plenary presentations. After exploring the challenges confronting academic workplaces, participants will put their new knowledge to work in a scenario-based, skills-building exercise. Topics covered include collective bargaining, grievance handling, equity, casualization, academic freedom, graphic design, video production, communications and media relations. Space is limited so early enrolment is encouraged.
