Hello GAs and TAs
As a Teaching Assistant (TA) or a Graduate Assistant (GA) at the University of Windsor, you belong to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 4580. As a strong and democratic union, CUPE is committed to improving the quality of life for workers in Canada. As CUPE members, we are committed to ensuring that our workplace is safe, and that we receive fair wages and benefits for the services we provide. Being a part of the union allows us to have a stronger, collective voice in our workplace, and in society as a whole!
Remember that the variety makes us stronger. Discriminatory speech or conduct which is racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic hurts and thereby divides us. So too, does discrimination on the basis of ability, age, class, religion, language and ethnic origin (Mark Hancock). If you face any kind of these discriminations, we are here for you.
