OCUFA releases first-ever public opinion poll on precarious academic work
Today, OCUFA released the results of a public opinion poll examining attitudes to precarious work in Ontario’s universities – the first of its kind in the province.

This new research demonstrates a strong level of support for good working conditions in our universities.

Highlights from the poll include:

“The poll results clearly show that Ontarians want universities to employ full-time professors, and to treat their contract faculty with fairness and respect,” said Bates. “In other words, the people of Ontario want every academic job to be a good job.”

The complete poll results are available from OCUFA.  < http://ocufa.on.ca/assets/2016-OCUFA-Study-PRESENTATION-Feb-8-2015.pdf >

The poll was conducted by Mission Research on behalf of OCUFA with a sample of 1000 individuals with results accurate to within +/- 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
