Partial Load Registry – 2021

With a new calendar year comes a new partial load registry list.

Registration for the current partial load registry list closed on October 31st, 2019.  The current registry is in effect January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

If you missed the last registration, you can register already for the 2021 registry.  It doesn’t matter if you are currently partial load — if you have been partial load in the past or think you may be partial load in the future, indicate if you would like to be considered for teaching partial load in the future.

To access and complete the Partial Load Registration Form:

  1. Log onto MyCampus
  2. Access “Evolve Administration Systems”
  3. Navigate to the registry via “My Self Service”->”Payroll and Compensation”->”Register for Partial Load”
  4. Select “Yes” from both drop down menus and submit your results.

If you want to learn more about the registry and what it means to you, plan to attend an information session at 10 am on Monday February 28, 2020 hosted by Local 352. More information will follow 🙂

Tampon Tuesday

TamponTuesday

Together with the Support Staff union at Fleming College (Local 351), we  will be running a ‘Tampon Tuesday’ event in honour of the upcoming International Women’s Day.

To support this initiative, as well as our other Fleming communities, donation bins will be set up to collect women’s menstrual products for local food banks in Haliburton, Lindsay and Peterborough, as well as support our Fleming Food Banks.

At Frost and Sutherland, two bins will be available: one in the Staff Lounge (staff donations) and one in the Library (for student donations).  Haliburton will place their donation bin in the Reception area. 

Menstrual Hygiene Products are one of the MOST REQUESTED yet LEAST DONATED items at Food Banks.

Seniority Lists and Partial Load Service Credits

In accordance with Article 27.04 of the collective agreement, the college publishes seniority lists each January.  Typically this is done on January 31st.

Faculty have two weeks to dispute the accuracy of these list.

The posted lists can be found in print form outside the Union office on Sutherland campus  (B3 ) or on the HR website. Links to the lists on the HR website are as follows:

While the full-time and probationary seniority lists are based on hiring date, the partial load seniority list is based upon service credits.

The way service credits are calculated change in October 1, 2017 with the new collective agreement.  Humber College has just produced (February 1, 2020) a useful video that explains how service credits calculation works:

If you have questions about your service credits, please don’t hesitate to speak with your supervisor or a union steward.

 

“ONTARIO DOUBLES DOWN ON DODGY COLLEGES”

Alex Usher published a blog post last week critical of the Ontario government’s decision to lessen restrictions on public/private partnerships between Ontario’s Colleges and private vocational colleges.

Nestled within the post are links to multiple resources sure to get you thinking.  What do you notice?  What do you wonder?  Reach out to your steward and let them know what your thoughts.
