Tell SFU to Honour its Agreement with RAs

June 10, 2020

In November 2019 the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU), after a hard-fought campaign, won an agreement from Simon Fraser University to recognize Research Assistants as employees of the university and members of TSSU. 

However, TSSU indicates that since that time the university has failed to make good on its agreements. It has launched a petition and a letter writing campaign to call upon SFUt o fulfill its obligations.

The VDLC sent a letter to SFU in support of this campaign. The letter can be viewed here:
