OPSEU: Together we will build a better society

NL's largest union stands shoulder to shoulder with student movement

The student and union movement have been long-time allies in the fight for properly resourced public services, good jobs, strong communities, and a more just and equal society. We are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with you and the students your organization unites. When public services, workers, jobs, pay and benefits have come under attack, students have been there on the front lines – waving your banner high and proud in support of our members. In the spirit of solidarity that has united our movements for so long, we will be proud to return that favour on November 2 at campuses and communities across Newfoundland and Labrador.

Canadian Association of University Teachers Supports the Day of Action


CAUT_ACPPU.gifPost-secondary education is a public good that benefits the whole of society. Skyrocketing tuition fees, rising student debt, fewer faculty, larger class sizes, program cuts, and the commercialization of research are all symptoms of chronic public underfunding.
