OCUFA Alarmed by Last-Minute Fall Guidelines for Postsecondary Education That Ignore Science, Compromise Health and Safety

CUPE 3903’s executive shares OCUFA’s (Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Association) concerns and position regarding the government’s unjustifiable exemption of postsecondary education settings from vital health and safety protections.

They state:
“With less than a week before the fall term begins, the inadequate guidelines introduced at the last minute by the Ontario government are deeply concerning, as they will increase the exposure risks to faculty, staff, and students…The government’s exemptions for capacity limits and distancing rules and the fact that it could not even pull together health guidelines until a few days before fall classes are set to begin, is of significant concern to academic staff at Ontario’s universities.”
