Bonjour à toutes et à tous,
Voici une invitation de la part de SOS McGill, qui travaille contre les
récentes coupures à l'Université McGill. Ce collectif fait appel à notre
solidarité pour une action qui aura lieu ce jeudi 5 décembre à midi à la
bibliothèque de McGill.
pour le Conseil exécutif de l'ASSÉ.
Attached is an invitation on behalf of SOS McGill, who is taking part in a
struggle against recent cuts at McGill University. This group requests our
solidarity for an action that will be taking place this Thursday December
5th at noon at the McGill library.
For the executive council of ASSÉ
SUPPORT OUR STAFF
Austerity means we all lose!
[ #SOS_McGill ]
After cutting 2 libraries & 27 librarians, McGill is now planning to remove
support staff from 14 departments.
In response, the campus community has consistently spoken against these
cuts. Plus there is a lack of evidence presented to stakeholders to suggest
the viability of relocating support staff, whether in terms of documented
cost-savings, demonstrable efficiencies, or student, staff, and faculty
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
1) Talk about it - Ask your student organization, faculty members, and
support staff if they are concerned about the restructuring in our
departments and libraries;
2) Participate - attend the Tuesday January 14 town hall we are organizing
from 5:35 p.m. to 7:25 p.m. in Arts W-215, in order to promote awareness
and build solidarity;
3) Share your concerns - Sign our open letter at the McGill Daily, email
the Dean of Arts directly at christopher.manfredi(a)mcgill.ca.
More specifically, we need folks to:
1. Chalk/sign making at 11:30am;
2. Tweet photos/messages during the Art Action;
3. We need bodies for the Art Action at Noon;
4. We need folks on site to pass out 200 fliers (see below for flier text).
Please confirm your participation. And see you Thursday at 11:30am at the
gathering point--just outside the Office for Students with Disabilities
(Redpath Library Building, Suite RS56 on 3459 McTavish Street).
And please be on time (the action itself will only last 10mins) and do
bring a friend!!
