Sometimes I really hate being right.

Shockingly, amazingly, York has now terminated at least twenty limited-term appointments from the faculty of arts, and plans to replace them with CUPE 3903 per-course contract lecturers. (Story here.) I note that, if CUPE 3903's proposals for contract lecturers had made it into a collective agreement, this sort of move would not have been cost-effective, and so would not have happened.

I suppose, though, that these limited-term professors have no one to blame but themselves for their obvious scholarly inadequacy.
