Title: Contract Worker Justice Student Organizer (Volunteer Opportunity)
Contact: Thomas Leischner, Student Engagement Coordinator, [email protected]
Description: Contract Worker Justice @SFU is a coalition of food service and cleaning workers, students, faculty, and other workers and community members at Simon Fraser University, including representatives from UNITEHERE Local 40, CUPE 3338, Teaching Support Staff Union, SFU Faculty Association, Graduate Student Society, Simon Fraser Student Society, and other community groups and individuals.
Food service and cleaning work on campus is currently contracted out, resulting in low pay, poor benefits, and no access to campus facilities, tuition waivers and even campus WiFi. The people who make and serve us food, and keep our campus clean and healthy deserve better. Food service and cleaning staff are part of the SFU community and they should have the same benefits that all SFU workers enjoy. We want SFU to employ food service and cleaning workers directly, to pay them better wages, give them better benefits, and give them access to school facilities and tuition deals.
As we continue to work towards these changes, we are forming a team of volunteer student organizers who will talk to, recruit, and mobilize students for our upcoming events and campaign actions.
Requirements: We are seeking reliable volunteers who can commit roughly two hours a week to organizing. We will train you in all of the communication and leadership skills required for the role.
Area of Study: All Faculty
Learning Outcomes: Critical Thinking, Effective Communication, Leadership Development, Social Responsibility
Deadline: 11:59pm November 6
