1. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Our Annual Members Meeting will take place on Friday, November 25, following a buffet supper for all our members in the “Jazzy” restaurant in the Unicentre. Please spread the word among all your colleagues so that we can get a strong turnout to elect Board members and discuss the important developments of the year.
2. PART-TIME PROF OF THE YEAR:
Congratulations to our APTPUO colleague, Dr. Jean-Philippe Daoust, who is the winner of the 2010 Part-Time Professor of the Year Award! Dr. Daoust will be honoured at our dinner on November 25, and will present a special laureate seminar earlier on the same day, to which you and all members of the University community are invited. (Details to be announced)
3. SENIORITY LIST:
One of the most important things that is considered in your hiring is the number of seniority points you have accumulated, according to the formula outlined in our Collective Agreement. Once a year, the University is supposed to post the Seniority List online, so that you can check that the number of seniority points on record for you is correct. We advise you to do this right now.
Here is the link to the Seniority List: http://www.rh.uottawa.ca/adhoc/aptpuo/
Here is the link to the Collective Agreement (the seniority provisions are contained in Section 8; see particularly Articles 5.8.1.a and 5.8.1.b: http://www.rh.uottawa.ca/fichiers/conventions/APTPUO/A/APTPUO.pdf
