The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) has recognized Prof. Edward Carter, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, with a 2015 Lorimer Award. The award recognizes individuals who have worked to protect and promote the interests of Ontario’s academic staff through collective bargaining.
“The 2015 winners of the Lorimer Award have gone above and beyond the call of duty to improve the working lives of Ontario’s faculty,” said Kate Lawson, president of OCUFA. “We are indebted to them for their hard work, resolve and dedication.”
The Lorimer Award was established in honour of Doug and Joyce Lorimer, who were instrumental in advancing faculty association collective bargaining in Ontario.
Carter received his award earlier this month at a ceremony in Toronto.
OCUFA represents 17,000 faculty and academic librarians in 28 faculty associations across Ontario.
