Your TA Duties May Be Wrapping Up At The End Of April, But The Union Continues To Work For You All Summer
With undergraduate exams wrapping up at the end of this month, your duties as a Teaching Assistant are likely to be concluding for the year as well. This does not mean, however, that the work of the union is finished!
Members in good standing who held a TAship in either or both of the fall and winter terms (2014-2015) continue to be eligible to apply for the union’s benefit programs throughout the summer term, including the Food Bank program, Financial Aid Fund, and Extended Health Plan.
In addition, incoming officers of the Local will begin to train for their positions throughout the month of May, the Local will continue to press for a town hall meeting with President Chakma for all graduate students to discuss issues related to university governance, and most importantly, the Bargaining team will begin to negotiate for a new contract with the Employer.
If you are employed as a TA throughout the summer term and encounter any work-related problems, be sure to contact your Division’s Chief Steward who will be available throughout the summer to assist you with any issues you might encounter.
