If you are having problems at work, or if you think that your rights as an employee are not being met properly, please get in touch with the union as soon as possible. As per our contract, there is a 21 day deadline from an event occurring (or the last occurrence of a recurring event), and the union's ability to lodge a grievance with the university. So it is highly important that you get in touch with us, as soon as you become aware of a problem. If you are not sure whether the problem is work-related, get in touch with us, and we can clarify.

Some examples of grievances:

  • If you don’t receive your assignment letter and description of duties before you begin work

  • If you’re being asked to perform additional duties that are not on your description of duties form

  • If you’re working more than your contracted hours and not being paid for them

  • If there’s any kind of harassment or discrimination from a supervisor or coworker

  • If your department or supervisor tries to decrease your hours after you’ve already signed all hiring paperwork

  • If your department is having you work as a TA/GA without an option to be hired

  • If your department requires a pedagogy class prior to hiring that you are paying for

  • And anything else that seems off to you


If you think you may have a grievance, please contact us as soon as possible so we can help you.
