As you may have heard by now, College Faculty are planning to Work to Rule starting this Saturday, December 18. Work to Rule means that we work exactly to the letter of our employment contract--no more. It is a legal form of protest, and it does not involve the loss of any pay.
Attached you will find two information sheets. One discusses what actions we will take during WTR, and the other is a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Any faculty who feels they may be disciplined for working to rule should contact the union immediately. The college is aware that we will be working to rule, and all chairs and managers have been informed that this is legal and not an excuse for discipline. Some will likely try to pressure members into breaking ranks. If you feel you are being pressured or threatened with retaliation for working to rule, contact the union immediately.
Remember: Work to Rule works if we all stand together and support each other. If you have questions, contact your union, Local 237 at Letterbox237@gmail.com . More information can also be found at www.local237.ca and www.collegefaculty.org.
We will continue to update you as soon as we receive more information from the Bargaining Team.
