1. about you and your workplace

8% of survey complete.

* 1. This survey of the psychosocial factors in your workplace is being undertaken jointly by OCUFA and CAUT, in partnership with the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW). It is a unique opportunity to build on the momentum from OCUFA’s recent workshop, After Bill 168: Occupational Health and Safety in Academy.

Among the priorities identified by participants were improvements to agreements between Faculty Associations and employers, more consistency across policies and procedures, greater awareness amongst Faculty Association members of the range of conditions and behaviours that foster harassment and increase workplace stress, and especially better education and more proactive undertakings by employers to address issues of harassment before they become problems.

The survey is an essential first step in meeting those goals. It covers a range of related issues to provide customized reports for Faculty Associations, and which can be used to develop nuanced proposals to:

• enhance the safety and well-being of members;
• improve faculty complement and workload;
• improve the conditions of contract faculty.

The greater the response rate, the greater the force and credibility of the reports. And the greater the pressure for your employer to take responsibility. Once you have completed the survey, how about getting involved with your Faculty Association to spread the word to your colleagues?
