The purpose of this research report is to clearly outline the impact of the ’Double Cohort’ and other factors on CUPE members who work in the university sector. Although there is still huge speculation on the impact of these massive changes on the system, CUPE members are preparing their demands for the restoration of funding, increased staffing, job security for members and accessibility for all. These changes come at a time when the system and its workers are already under great stress ’ a stress caused by Ontario government cutbacks in funding to date. As we face de-regulation, massive tuition fee hikes, privatization and corporatization in the university sector, ’Universities Work Because We Do!’ continues to be our theme ’ a theme which demonstrates our support not only for our own members in this struggle but an equal commitment to supporting students and their families who deserve a high quality, publicly funded and accessible university system.
