To All Faculty,
You should have received an electronic newsletter from the college president last Friday. What you should be of utmost concern for all staff is the second item: The Algonquin College Strategic Mandate Agreement.
An examination of the document is troubling for a number of reasons, but of particular concern is the reference to the academic programs of strength. It is not clear that all college programs are captured by the categories identified by the college, so it is in your interest to see if your program fits the nine categories. The document can be read here:
Furthermore, there is a Strategic Mandate Agreement Town Hall Scheduled for this Friday March 14 from 2-3:30 P.M. Room T102. You can register by following this link: http://www3.algonquincollege.com/sma/
Everyone needs to understand where his or her livelihood will be if the upcoming version of the college’s submission to the Ontario Government is approved as it is currently written.
If upon reading the document you are concerned your program is not reflected in the document, please attend the town hall and by all means contact the union office at 7716 with your concern.
President, OPSEU Local 415
