(Ottawa – November 6, 2017) If you haven’t joined the more than 1,400 people who have responded to the CAUT Contract Academic Staff (CAS) Survey, you still have a chance. The survey deadline is being extended until December 15th.
The survey is open for individuals who taught at least one course in the 2016-2017 academic year at a post-secondary institution in Canada. This first national survey will shed light on the working experiences of the thousands of academic staff who are hired to teach on a temporary basis every year.
“We decided to extend the deadline to be able to reach more people to get a better picture of the ever-growing numbers of academic staff trapped in precarious contract and part-time work,” explained CAUT’s director of research and political action, Pam Foster.
