UPEIFA Focused on Indigenization
UPEIFA Proposals Would Advance Efforts to Indigenize UPEI
The UPEI Faculty Association has assembled an ambitious package of proposals that directly address a range of collective agreement issues related to the University’s strategic priority of Indigenization. If our efforts to amend the Collective Agreement to help advance the goals of Indigenization and decolonization at UPEI are successful, this would provide direct, meaningful, and unprecedented support for Indigenous Faculty and Contract Academic Staff in the areas of hiring, tenure/promotion, and due process.
UPEIFA’s proposals are rooted in the understanding that Indigenous rights are enshrined in Treaties, the Canadian Constitution, and various international agreements. In recognition of the historic wrongs committed against First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, our proposals are designed to advance proactive measures aimed at defending, restoring, and renewing Indigenous practices and knowledge.
By bringing proposals to advance Indigenization to the table, UPEIFA is Bargaining For A Better UPEI.
