The University of Ontario Institute of Technology Faculty Association (“UOITFA”) has been notified that it has been named in an application under the Ontario Human Rights Code related to the Hasbara Fellowship having been denied a table during the Student Association at Durham College and UOIT‘s “Social Justice Week” held in March 2016.
The decision to deny the Hasbara Fellowship a table was the result of a resolution of the Student Association.
It was not a decision made by the UOITFA.
The UOITFA neither organized the event nor made any decisions as to which organizations would be permitted to have tables at the event.
Furthermore, the UOITFA has neither passed any policy nor taken any position respecting the issues which gave rise to the decision to deny the Hasbara Fellowship a table during Social Justice Week.
The UOITFA does not have any policy and has not taken any position with respect to boycotts or sanctions against, or divestment from Israel or any other state.
The recently ratified collective agreement is now available in full here. Please contact us if you have any questions.
(OSHAWA) Last week on the final scheduled day of mediation prior to the UOITFA strike deadline, the UOITFA and UOIT reached a tentative agreement on a new 3-year Collective Agreement for Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty.
Today, the tentative agreement for three years was ratified by UOITFA members with a vote of 96% in favour.
The University and the UOIT Faculty Association are pleased to advise that they have reached a tentative agreement. Details of the agreement will remain confidential until both parties have conducted their ratification processes, after which further details will be available. All classes and activities at the University will proceed as scheduled.
Send a letter to the administration supporting the bargaining demands of the UOIT Faculty Association.
