POSTDOC UNION: University of Western Ontario Postdocs Unionize

The Uconn Postdoc Unionization is reaching far beyond the US soil, last month the biggest PostDoc campus, University of California system faced the challenges of postdocs unionizing, the local labor board recognized postdocs can unionize, what a great success to PostDocs at the UC campuses. Here is another news from far away land, Canada, the western Ontario University postdocs unionized this week.

News:
Post-doc fellows at UWO unionize
Sat, October 4, 2008
By VIVIEN FELLEGI, SPECIAL TO SUN MEDIA

Fed up with what they say are poor working conditions, post-doctoral fellows at the University of Western Ontario have unionized.

About 250 post-doctoral fellows joined the Public Service Alliance of Canada when the Ontario Labour Relations Board certified their application on Sept. 30.

PostDoc Union in Canada? News!



National union to represent Western postdoctoral associates


By Communications Staff
Friday, October 3, 2008
One of Canada's largest unions, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), will soon be certified by the Ontario Labour Relations Board to represent the group of postdoctoral fellows employed as postdoctoral associates at The University of Western Ontario
.

Last February when PSAC filed its application with the Ontario Labour Relations Board to represent the union, there were 236 postdoctoral fellows, 30 of whom were classified as postdoctoral associates and employees of Western and therefore eligible to join a union. The remaining fellows are considered to be independent contractors.

 
Western and PSAC have also agreed to develop objective criteria to determine in future which postdoctoral fellows are employed as postdoctoral associates and which postdoctoral fellows are independent contractors.

“As employees of Western, the postdoctoral associates have exercised their right to join a union,” says Helen Connell, Associate Vice President, Communications and Public Affairs at Western. “Western's administration looks forward to having a positive working relationship with PSAC as we do with the other unions on campus.”

 
"PSAC has developed a solid expertise in representing workers from the academic field," said Gerry Halabecki, the PSAC Regional Executive Vice President for Ontario. "By being part of the large PSAC family, postdoctoral fellows and postdoctoral associates at Western will be in a better position to improve their working conditions."

PSAC's campaign was supported by the Postdoctoral Association at Western, which is an uncertified association that has advocated for better working conditions for postdoctoral associates and postdoctoral fellows.

Here is the PostDoc Wheel of PRO/UAW, this is like the Wheel of Dhamma of Lord Buddha's that is a symbol of justice and liberation. The latest news from PRO/UAW is very promising to the 5000 or more postdocs in different campuses of University of California System.
PRO/UAW

The Union for Postdoctoral Researchers at the University of California
PRO/UAW is the Union for over 5,000 Postdoctoral Researchers at the University of California. By signing up a majority of Postdocs, we can exercise our legal rights to bargain with UC. Postdoc representatives we choose will survey us to determine priorities and will then negotiate a contract with UC. We can negotiate for improvements in wages, hours, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment. Postdocs will then have an opportunity to democractically approve the agreement that UC and our bargaining team reach, before it becomes a binding contract.
