Collectively Speaking – March 2022 It’s About Choice

The March 2022 issue of Collective Speaking focuses on the statement: It’s about choice. In this issue, USFA Chair Geraldine Balzer remarks on some of the foundational articles of our Collective Agreement and notes the challenge facing us is that each party to the Collective Agreement can choose how to live up to those contractual agreements. This issue also has three articles around the common theme of the Employer’s choice to not involve faculty in decision-making and problem-solving. One article is about ICT and how their choices are impacting faculty. Another article is about the Employer’s choice to amalgamate three departments in the College of Arts and Science. The third article is about the College of Nursing and how faculty are exercising their choices.
