FFUW REACTS TO THE RIWG’S DIVESTMENT REJECTION

Last week, the RIWG released its recommendations to the Board of Governors. The report, published a mere four days before the Board is scheduled to vote on the recommendations, rejects students’ and faculty’s request that the University divest its pension and endowment funds from fossil fuels.

FFUW thus urges the Board of Governors to respect students’ and faculty’s will, to uphold the University’s commitments to environmental and social justice, sustainability and innovation, and to vote against these recommendations. Read FFUW’s Memorandum to the Board of Governors.
