Partial load is Part-time - doesn’t count
Professor (part-time) (Employé actuel) – Oakville, ON – 16 juillet 2019
Try getting a bank loan if you just work from contract to contract. Even if you work for years, why should a bank support you if you your job won’t even claim you as one of theirs?
Don’t get into academics! The union agreement says partial load jobs have job security, but because there are so many new full timers, which they did NOT hire from partial load, there are fewer and fewer partial load jobs. Management is sympathetic, they will even shed tears when they offer you fewer and fewer hours.
If you are faculty, there is no path to promotion.

Part time faculty are place fillers and not valued
