Enhancements for Partial-Load Faculty

Management Bargaining update February 2, 2022

As educators, we know that students benefit from the academic and real-word experience that partial load faculty bring to the classroom and to applied research.

For partial-load faculty, our offer improves certainty with the following enhancements:

  • Allows for the accrual of service for holidays on which faculty are scheduled to teach
  • Stabilizes the provision of priority status for a full academic year
  • Extends priority status for former partial-load employees who are currently employed on a sessional or part-time basis
  • Maintains partial-load priority status if a course code/name changes but the course material hasn’t undergone a major revision

OPSEU’s proposals would actually create greater uncertainty for partial-load faculty by allowing longer serving partial-load faculty to bump other partial-load faculty out of teaching assignments.

I encourage you to support management’s offer so that we can bring the certainty you, your students, and your Colleges need in these uncertain times.
