Anna Maria Tremonti and Contract Academic Faculty

In a few days, we’ll be posting the Winter 2014 ACCUTE Newsletter, featuring ACCUTE sessional rep  Dorothy Hadfield’s column on contract academic labour, and my own column on ACCUTE’s current attempt to develop and promulgate a  “best practices” checklist for contract academic faculty in Canadian Departments of English.  Please stay tuned.

But this just in:  CBC’s  The Current, with Anna Maria Tremonti, is inquiring into “The income gap between tenure faculty & adjunct contract professors in Canadian universities.”  They write:  “we would like to hear your stories about being an adjunct professor or contract employee.”

It is time for national action on this shameful issue.  Check out The Current’s webposting here:
