CUPE RA Organizing Committee

FREE lunch for RAs and RA union supporters TOMORROW (November 18th) at NOON in the Crypt on main campus (in the Environmental Sciences building right below the office of Graduate Studies).

This will be the last chance for people to sign RA cards to help call a referendum of RA unionization. Please encourage all RAs to come and sign cards. 

If you want to sign a card but won’t be on campus, the committee can make alternative arrangements to come to you. Email: trentRAcommittee@gmail.com

The TGSA has officially endorsed the Research Assistant union drive. We believe that RAs at Trent, like GTAs, would benefit from the right to bargain collectively, ensuring they have clear standards and access to benefits.
For this drive to be successful this semester, the RA Committee needs to reach all research assistants (including undergrad and grad students, non-students, research techs and scientists, and research fellows). In order for RAs to vote on whether they would like to form a union, 50% of all RAs need to sign cards in support. Please check out www.trentRA.ca, and pass this info on to anyone you know who works in research at Trent.
