    October 1, 2020
    Are you holding an appointment this semester? 😃Is this your first time teaching? 😆Confused about your health benefits as a TSSU member? 😅Healthcare can be expensive, particularly for international students.

    SSJC Letter in Response to BC Government Announcement on Support for Renters During COVID-19 Pandemic

    March 31, 2020
    To Hon. Premier Horgan and Minister Robison, The Solidarity & Social Justice Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) stands in solidarity with working class and working poor renters across the province who are feeling the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic in acute and unique ways. We applaud the announcement on March 25 regarding the moratorium on evictions and rent increases. This eviction ban is especially important, as it ensures no one unable to pay rent on April 1 will lose their housing. However, we do not feel the $500 subsidy to be paid directly to landlords addresses this need in the systemic way that is required at this time. Furthermore, it does not speak to the high cost
