Western, be fair to postdoctoral researchers

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Postdoctoral researchers are critical to the high quality of research conducted at Western University. They and their families make personal sacrifices to come to Western for an indefinite term and dedicate themselves wholly in advancing the Western's reputation for excellence.

Postdocs are seeking basic improvements to wages and health care which would keep Western in line with other leading research institutions in Ontario. At a minimum salary of $31,840, it is difficult to make ends meet. Basic health care needs, such as dental and vision care for researchers and their families, are delayed and avoided because they present a significant financial burden to many postdocs and their families.

Please sign this petition to urge Western University to treat its postdoctoral researchers fairly. Thank you for your support.
