3 ULFA Town Halls on Collective Bargaining

Mark your calendars and make your voices heard!

ULFA is hosting three town halls as part of building a mandate for the next round of collective bargaining in 2020.

Two of the town halls will be about the AB 2019 Budget. The purpose of these town halls will be to organize our response in the face of cutbacks and government imposed mandates to roll back salaries.

The other town hall is regarding the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Report released by ULFA.

Light refreshments will be provided at each town hall.

Museums around the world have been challenged by protesters in recent years to account for who and what they show and who is footing the bill. While the questions aren’t new, the expectations about how museums function as public entities are, especially in the U.S. Starting with a key scene from Black Panther, this talk will explore the ways institutions are being asked to transform themselves as formerly excluded groups are staking their claims.

Aruna D’Souza writes about modern and contemporary art; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; and how museums shape our views of each other and the world.  Her most recent book Whitewalling: Art, Race, and Protest in 3 Acts(Badlands Unlimited) was named one of the best art books of 2018 by the New York Times. Her work appears regularly in 4Columns.org, where she is a member of the editorial advisory board, and has also been published in The Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, Art News, Garage, Bookforum, Momus, Art in America, and Art Practical, among other places. She is currently editing two forthcoming volumes, Making It Modern: A Linda Nochlin Reader, and Lorraine O’Grady: Writing in Space 1973-2018.

Salary, Tenure & Promotion (STP) Workshops

Are you up for salary, tenure or promotion this year? Are you unsure what information is relevant or how much is too much? Are you serving on a STP committee and unsure what your role is? ULFA cordially invites you to our STP Workshops where you will give provided with a variety of tips and information on the STP process.

ULFA is changing the way we offer our STP Workshops so that the STP Workshop for Chairs/Committee members will be offered in the fall and the STP Workshop for applicants will be offered in the spring. This year, though, we will offer both workshops in the beginning of September so we don’t miss anyone who will be applying this fall. Please mark your calendars, ULFA’s two STP Workshops will be held between September 1st to 4th.

Two workshops will be offered, each covering a different topic. The first workshop is designed to assist applicants who are applying for extension of probation, tenure and/or promotion. The second workshop is designed to assist STP Committee Chairs and members in their roles.

STP Workshop for Applicants
The presentation will cover the STP process as well as provide advise on putting together a teaching dossier, research materials, and the service component of assigned duties. As well, there will be information on how to engage the appeal process in the event of an unfavourable decision, along with a question and answer period.

STP Workshop for Committee Chairs and members
The presentation will cover the STP process as well as provide advise on chairing a STP Committee under our Handbook and how the STP Procedures relate to the Handbook. There will also be time for a questions and answer period.

Once dates and locations have been selected information will be share through email and the ULFA website.
