Minister David’s current proposal does not meet our expectations for a Council of Universities.
This message is a point of consensus right across the university community, for both student associations and labour unions.
The consultations on this matter begin the week of October 31, and the points of consensus shared by various actors in the university community will be heard: we want a possible Council of Universities to be independent, representative, and protect universities for commodification, and for its creation to be accompanied by a substantial and recurring reinvestment in higher education.
In support of these goals, a flyer setting out 8 points of consensus has been produced in collaboration with FAECUM, FAEUQEP, FNEEQ-CSN, CSN-Fédération des professionèles, FQPPU, CSQ-Regroupement des syndicats universitaires, and UEQ
