Precarious working conditions
Instructor (Part-time) (Employé actuel) – Oshawa, ON – 16 juillet 2019
Teaching is a great way to give back to the community and earn a living. The problem is, our society has no respect for teachers and seems to think we can live on air.
As a part timer, there is NO job security, and even at partial load, that security is an illusion. They just drop you down to part-time again to get rid of you.
The union tries, but because we just get legislated back to work, they have no teeth. Ford even reversed one of the contract concessions we won after the last strike. If the College Counsel does manage good faith, then the province doesn’t.
Don’t count on a college employer, they may even want to be fair, but they WILL let you down.
