    Attend the Vancouver & District Labour Council’s 2019 International Women’s Day Dinner: March 8th

    Every year, the TSSU purchases a table at the International Women’s Day Dinner hosted by the Vancouver District & Labour Council. This year is no different, so we would like to invite any TSSU members who are interested in attending the event to contact the TSSU office in AQ 5129 in-person, via email (, or by phone (778-782-4735). The IWD Dinner is a celebration of women’s contributions to struggles for justice around the world, and a great opportunity to meet other women and non-binary folks in the labour movement here on unceded Coast Salish territories. Although everyone will considered, priority will be given to women and non-binary TSSU members, and at least half of the eight seats will be reserved

    Special General Membership Meeting: February 4th, 5 – 7 pm, RCB 6125

    At the January GM, the TSSU membership requested a Special General Membership Meeting (SGM) to allow for an in-depth discussion of the collective bargaining proposals prepared by the Contract Committee. The SGM will be held on Monday, February 4th, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm in RCB 6125 on the Burnaby campus.

As always, dinner will be provided, and we have a Meeting Childcare Subsidy to help

    Letter of Solidarity with the Unist’ot’en Camp and the Wet’suwet’en Nation

    January 22, 2019 The Teaching Support Staff Union is an independent, feminist and member-driven union that represents over 2000 teaching assistants, tutor markers, sessional instructors and ELC/ITP instructors at Simon Fraser University. The TSSU membership reaffirms its support of the Unist’ot’en Camp and stands in firm solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en Nation and the movement fighting for Indigenous Sovereignty against encroachments by extractive industries and the Canadian state. We condemn the colonial Canadian state and the RCMP for continuously enabling extractive industries like the Coastal GasLink to insert pipelines on unceded First Nations territory without consent. In northern British Columbia, the Wet’suwet’en stand in the path of the Northern Gateway pipeline. Threatened not only by Northern Gateway, Wet’suwet’en territory is to
