    Marking Party!! Two-Day Mark-a-thon!

    April 17 & 1810:00am to 3:00pmLocation: AQ 5009, SFU Burnaby Marking season is upon us all! It’s the time we all dread. You sit alone with a mountain of papers (or a seemingly never ending SpeedGrader queue) and grit your teeth to prepare for a lonely, mindnumbing marathon of end-of-term marking.  BUT!! You don’t need to do it alone! Join your fellow TSSU members in a two day Markathon, where we work together and get fed and where you can ask long-term TAs’ advice about feedback, time management, or Canvas usage! 😉 There will be coffee upon coffee, snacks and pizza & salad for lunch! (Gluten free and vegan option will be available.) Feel free to come to both days

    Meet Your Contract Committee Social

    April 174:00pm to 6:00pmClub Ilia, Cornerstone, SFU Burnaby April 245:00pm to 7:00pmCentral City Pub, Surrey (Vancouver Session details to come…) Please join us in an evening of frizzy drinks, yummy snacks, and meeting the Contract Committee that represents us at the bargaining table with the University!! The Contract Committee are the folks that we elected to negotiate with the University during bargaining. Every few years we bargain a binding Collective Agreement that sets out rights to access work, wages, benefits and more. However, they won’t win anything at the table without all of us working and standing together. Our childcare fund, MSP coverage, centralized job posting, sessional seniority, grad student TA priority, and ELC/ITP pro-D and seniority, etc. were won
