Members, friends, and colleagues,
We continued to meet with the employer on Tuesday, November 3, and Friday, November 6. We held productive discussions around the issues of TA training and student evaluations which can result in positive outcomes for the graduate and post-graduate careers of our members. We have agreed to a number of housekeeping changes to better reflect existing practice. Please keep in mind that we will enter into monetary related discussions once we have resolved the changes to language that were based on membership input and discussed at our town hall membership meeting. Generally all monetary items are dealt with at the end of collection bargaining negotiations.
