Sessionals/Adjuncts at UofT unionize 

Greetings, Sessionals/Adjuncts at UofT unionize Sessional instructors (aka adjuncts) at the University of Toronto voted 82% in favour of unionizing with the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 3902. Although the Union and the Employer still have issues to resolve regarding the composition of the bargaining unit, the ballots counted on Wednesday morning indicate strong support for the Union. The outstanding issues largely involve the question of whether sessionals teaching more than 1 full-year course qualify as part of the bargaining unit. The University maintains that these individuals have more in common with tenured faculty than they do with sessionals teaching 1 course or less. The Union believes that all academics employed on short-term contracts belong in the same bargaining unit. 204 ballots were cast yesterday. 111 ballots were counted of which 90 voted in favour of the union, 20 voted against and 1 was spoiled. There are approximately 700 sessionals/adjuncts at the University of Toronto. The Sessionals Organizing Committee at the UofT was strongly supported in the certification drive by CUPE 3902 which currently represents more than 4,000 teaching assistants and course instructors at the University of Toronto. Mikael Swayze Staff Representative, CUPE 3902
