This coming Friday, September 27th is the annual Concordia Shuffle. Many of you will already be well aware of the event, but for those who are not, it is an opportunity for participants from the University community to give their support to generating student scholarships by walking from the Sir George Williams campus to the Loyola campus.
The Shuffle has always been an event that part-time faculty have supported. After all, its sole purpose is to financially help students. It is an event towards which our Association is proud to make a yearly donation of $500. In addition, this year for the first time, we will have a presence with a table at the kickoff in the atrium of the EV building between 11am and 1pm., and at the picnic at Loyola afterwards. At these tables we will be giving away CUPFA t-shirts, caps, and buttons to our members. We encourage as many members as possible to come out for this event. Though we are hopeful that the recent developments in negotiations for a new Collective Agreement with the employer will be successful, certainly a presence of many members wearing a “team-jersey” can only help to impress many of our resolve.
You can officially register for the Shuffle at Concordia.ca/shuffle. Hope to see more CUPFA members than ever before.
Executive Secretary, CUPFA
