Please Halt Planned Cuts at McMaster sign now

Members of the McMaster community and university sector are concerned that the proposed restructuring underway at McMaster will hurt students and workers. We call on the McMaster administration to reconsider plans to:

* eliminate low-enrollment courses
* shut down under-funded programs of study
* merge sections of courses, resulting in larger classes and
overburdened faculty
* lay-off more than 200 Sessional Faculty members at McMaster

We believe that the "economic crisis" in which universities (and employers generally) find themselves cannot be resolved by cutting workers and reducing academic quality.

Eliminating Sessional Faculty positions will not solve the budget challenges facing the university, and in fact will cause a deeper crisis at McMaster. Your plans will leave departments understaffed and students facing larger class sizes, fewer course options and a compromised degree.

Please don't shortchange our McMaster students. Please treat McMaster staff with respect. Please halt your planned academic cuts!

    in my four years at McMaster, I have never seen the integrity of academics threatened in such a manner before. Often, the best courses I have ever had were in smaller classes taught by underpaid sessional staff who despite the unfair descrepancies in wage

    Whereas I recognize the current hard economic situation, I cannot believe the proposed cuts are in the best interests of McMaster University, its reputation, nor the cause of academic freedom.
