The Ontario University Workers Coordinating Committee is a voluntary association representing more than 30,000 members working in the university sector. We work in a wide range of academic and support roles, including security, parking, skilled trades, clerical and administrative positions, caretaking, food services, groundskeeping, research, technical and library workers, sessional instructors, teaching assistants and post-doctoral students.
Most work directly for the province’s universities, although some work for contractors on campuses.
OUWCC coordinates university bargaining and province-wide political action on university issues, and facilitates information-sharing between locals. We host an annual spring conference, where we democratically determine our action plan.
