Postdoctoral Associates at UWO been trying to negotiate a first collective agreement for two whole years and negotiations have stalled once again. They are being offered a mere $10.93 an hour – that’s only 68 cents above minimum wage for highly trained academics with PhDs!
The university does not want to give them benefits or a reasonable number of sick days. Postdocs have the worst working conditions on campus – their hourly wages are lower than student teaching assistants, housekeepers and clerks.
After spending more than a decade earning at least three academic degrees, these workers deserve fair treatment and reasonable compensation.
