Social Media Day of Action – February 12, 2020
February 12 is OCUFA’s Social Media Day of Action. It’s a day for contract faculty and allies to come together to support publicly funded education and better contract faculty working conditions. This year’s day of action theme is #BrokenPromises. The day of action is set to advocate for fairness for contract faculty and to extend solidarity with education unions. The Ford government is full of #BrokenPromises – to workers, to students, to communities. Half of the faculty in Ontario universities work on short-term precarious contracts, often without benefits or any job security. The Ford government has broken its promise to not cut jobs in the public sector, including at Ontario’s universities. They have broken promises to make life affordable by making massive cuts to OSAP. Together, we will continue the fight to push back against the Ford government, working with the public school teachers, support workers, and parents who are tired of Ford’s #BrokenPromises and cuts to our cherished public education system. Join us on Twitter and use the hashtag #BrokenPromises.
