Resume Workshop & Additional Compensation

Second APTPUO Workshop on Resume Writing


On Wednesday, April 8 the APTPUO is organizing a second workshop on how to write strong resumes. Members are invited to learn about what the University looks for in a resume when hiring part-time professors.
We encourage you to bring your resume and examples of job postings that you would like to apply for since this workshop has the goal of ensuring that these skills can be put into practice.
 
Facilitator: Pascal Sergent, APTPUO Francophone Grievance Officer
 
Wednesday, April 8 at 5:45pm in the Faculty of Social Sciences building (120 University Private), room 4004
 
Bilingual workshop.

 

Additional Compensation - Accommodations and supplemental examinations


The Association and the Employer are in ongoing discussions and negotiations in relation to compensation for accommodation requests and supplementary examinations. The Association's position is that when an APTPUO professor has to create an additional exam for students who missed the regular exam (including mid-term exams) they have the right to be compensated $150 as per Article 5.2.2.1 in the Collective Agreement. When the Student Access Service Center requests that an APTPUO professor provides exam-related accommodations for any student in a course, the Association's position is that this additional work shall be compensated $200 per course upon request as per Article 5.2.2.2.c in the Collective Agreement.
 
Do not forget to file a request with your unit or department as soon as possible to be compensated for any additional work for accommodations. Be sure to 'cc the Association so  that your request for compensation can be included in future settlements with the employer.  
 

Mandatory Online Trainings


At the end of February, members teaching a course this term received an email notification from the Employer regarding mandatory online trainings. The APTPUO has reached an agreement with the Employer that all members who complete all of the mandatory online trainings shall receive $200.00 in recognition of this additional work. The amount will be deposited directly in your bank account within 45 days after the end of the semester during which you completed the training. The training is completed once the tests associated with each of the modules is completed and passed by the professor.
 
Be sure to complete all six trainings, including the Supervisor Health and Safety Awareness Module. The Supervisor training is mandatory because professors supervise students and staff.
 
For more information, please contact the office of the Association or visit the training website.

Those who have already completed all of the training modules will be compensated.
 

Academica Group & HEQCO Ontario Contract/Non-full-time Faculty Survey


This survey is being funded by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) to provide information about the Ontario contract/non-full-time faculty population. If you have taught in a contract/non-full-time capacity in Ontario in the past year (May 2014 to April 2015), then we’d like to hear from you. Your views and experiences are important to us and we hope you will share them in this online survey.
