    Candidate Statements – Fall 2021 Executive Elections

    November 9, 2021
    Yes, these are the Fall 2021 statements! ——————————————————– Trustee I Position (1 Candidate) Maria Cristina Albuquerque Hi everyone,  My name is Maria Cristina and I am an international grad student about to finish my Master’s in Education. I am from Brazil, and as an international student I would love to keep representing international students on the Executive Committee. For the last year, I have been the TSSU Trustee I and you have probably seen me presenting *very exciting* by-law changes (thanks for listening I know it is not that exciting). Since I am more familiar with the Trustees duties, I am running again for the position of Trustee I. As the Trustee I, I have worked on the Internal Relations

    SSJC expresses solidarity with Wet’suwet’en and condemns violence by RCMP

    November 22, 2021
    The Solidarity and Social Justice Committee (SSJC) of the Teaching Support Staff Union condemns the violent arrests of the Gidimt’en land defenders and supporters, the destruction of Indigenous land known as the Cas Yikh by Coastal GasLink, and the violent actions of the RCMP. We further support the call for a peaceful evacuation of Coastal GasLink workers. On September 22, 2021, the RCMP and Coastal GasLink destroyed the Ts’elkay Kwe Ceek archeological site, and RCMP officers were violent and torturous toward Gidimt’en land defenders and their supporters to enforce the destruction. Additionally, on November 18th, 2021 heavily armed RCMP officers were sent to Cas Yikh land to enforce a supreme court injunction and arrest Wet’suwet’en land defenders and supporters. Among

    Join us Sept 23 to demand an RA Contract Now!

    September 17, 2021
    In November 2019, over 900 Research Assistants and Grant Employees (RAs) demanded and won the right to unionize with TSSU. RAs have waited for 671 days and counting as SFU Administration has refused again and again to honour the unionization they agreed to. At the bargaining table, we’ve seen SFU act in bad faith by going back on their word and continue to delay and interfere. Their delays mean RAs are without critical protections and benefits while we still toil away to produce the research that builds SFU’s reputation. RAs need your help! Tell SFU Administration: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We need to tell them loud and clear what RAs need: inclusion of all RAs in the Union, as was agreed in
