We have a lot of exciting events planned, and we’re inviting all TSSU members, past and present, to take part.

    Call for CGEU and COCAL Conference Self-Nominations

    This August, TSSU will send delegates to the annual conferences of the Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor (COCAL) in San Jose, CA from August 3 – 5, and the Coalition of Graduate Employee Unions (CGEU) in New York City from August 16 – 19. At the conferences, delegates will participate in workshops and discussions with members from other graduate employee and precarious academic labour unions, learn about working conditions at other colleges and universities, and gain and develop new strategies for building workers’ power on-campus and off. We are looking for self-nominations of TSSU members who wish to attend either conference. At the March 22, 2018 General Membership Meeting, members voted to cover attendees’ transportation, accommodation, and per diem costs
