The TSSU 2019 Bargaining Survey is now available

UPDATE: It appears that a number of people have found errors and/or had problems with the functionality of the TSSU Bargaining Survey. We’re working as quickly as possible to fix the Survey and make it more user-friendly and accessible. As members you have the right to express your thoughts and opinions as clearly as possible about the Collective Agreement, TSSU, and your work at SFU. Thank you to everyone who has contacted us with their concerns regarding this matter.

The TSSU 2019 Bargaining Survey is now available. This is a valuable opportunity for you as individual members to share your thoughts about the Collective Agreement and your work experience as a Teaching Assistant, Tutor Marker, Sessional Instructor, or English Language & Culture/Interpretation & Translation Program Instructor. As TSSU prepares to go into bargaining with the SFU administration early next year, we need your input about what you would like to see in the next Collective Agreement.

During our last round of bargaining, TSSU won some of the strongest Sessional Seniority rights in North America, ensuring that Sessional Instructor appointments are given on the basis of seniority as course instructors, not departmental politics. We’ve also won a TA appointment priority system that ensures grad student work goes to grad students, paid compensation for overwork, 100% MSP coverage for international students, and more!

All current TSSU members should have received an email inviting them to participate in the Survey. If you did not receive this email or are unsure whether you should have, please contact us at or visit our Burnaby office in AQ 5129.
