GTAs mandate bargaining demands and priorities - update from the bargaining team

Dear Graduate Teaching Assistants,

On October 5 the GTA membership approved the list of priorities proposed by the GTA Bargaining Team as follows (ordered starting from the highest priority):

  • Real wage increases
  • Appointments (including criteria and extended funding period)
  • Tuition Rebate
  • Benefits
  • Hours of Work and Overtime


In addition, a larger list of demands (not ordered) was approved. The discussion at the meeting was very useful for the GTA Bargaining Team. There was a motion to amend the order of priorities which, although it did not carry, also led to productive discussion. We thank everyone who participated in the meeting. Your active participation in the process is crucial.

Some slides (not complete) from the meeting are attached here. To ensure a strong position in bargaining, we do not make available all details from the meeting. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us throughout the bargaining process. We value your input, and are always happy to discuss if you have any questions or comments.

In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Team (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.):
