November Meeting Minutes

The minutes of the November 2019 BISC Graduate Caucus meeting are available here.

  • Research Assistants unionized! On Nov 15, SFU and TSSU agreed to make RAs employees of the University and voluntarily recognize them as TSSU members. Collective bargaining will commence May 1st
  • MSP Changes: The system for charging MSP premiums is changing, resulting in major increases in costs for international students, particularly for international students with families, who could end up paying hundreds of dollars per month. TSSU is organizing to make sure SFU continues to cover the costs for TSSU members, as clearly stated in the Collective Agreement. To stay updated of further info or future actions, please see:
