    TSSU Statement Condemning Anti-Black Racism: Alumni Arrest and Institutional Response

    December 14, 2020
    December 14, 2020 This letter is prepared on behalf of the Solidarity and Social Justice Committee and Executive Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union in strong condemnation of anti-Black racism that occurred on SFU’s Burnaby campus on December 11. We are writing to express our disappointment and anger at the violent arrest of a Black SFU Alumnus and the University’s response to this incident. Actions taken against this individual require concrete and meaningful actions that will lead to institutional change and, ultimately, safety for all current and future BIPOC students.  It cannot be stressed enough how deplorable it is that the police were called regarding the presence of a Black person that was causing no harm to anyone around

    SSJC stands in Solidarity with Hilton Metrotown Workers

    April 26, 2021
    The Solidarity and Social Justice Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union stands in unequivocal support and solidarity with the Hilton Metrotown workers including room attendants, front desk agents, laundry attendants, kitchen staff and other hourly workers.  TSSU is a labour union which also faced challenges during the pandemic.  For example, Simon Fraser University has delayed bargaining for a Collective Agreement for Research Assistants and Grant Employees (RAs).  We see bargaining as an important act to practice our labour rights and we were held back to negotiate for our members. Threats to a safe and supporting workplace for Hilton Metrotown workers are threats to workers rights in general including unified workers at TSSU.  Hilton Metrotown Management has fired 97 long-term

    SSJC Letter in Opposition to TMX Pipeline

    January 18, 2021
    The Solidarity and Social Justice Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union is in support of the letter put forward by Students Against TMX, which calls for ceasing construction of the TransMountain Pipeline and investment in Indigenous-led green infrastructure projects. Our members, whose workplaces are located in direct proximity to the Burnaby Mountain tank farm and terminal, which is unceded Coast Salish territory. We must uphold and commit to empowering Indigenous sovereignty, as well as our community safety and therefore call on the government to uphold their promises of reconciliation and address the ongoing climate crisis by stopping the pipeline expansion immediately. We stand with the signatories of the Students Against TMX letter, which include thirteen student groups representing 180,000
