Collective Bargaining for Academic Librarians

CAUT Librarians Conference and Workshop

Academic librarians face a myriad of workplace challenges. Collective bargaining is an effective way to resolve them. From basic conditions of employment (salary and benefits) to workload, research leave, teaching responsibilities and academic freedom, librarians can use this tool to shape the rules governing their working lives.

The Canadian Association of University Professors October 2007 CAUT Librarians Conference will examine how academic librarians can engage with the bargaining process alongside their faculty colleagues and have an impact at the negotiating table.

The conference begins with presentations and discussions on librarian collective bargaining issues. Day two is a bargaining simulation workshop geared specifically to academic librarians. Please join us at this important event.
