#BetterMac let's build a better Mac! CUPE 3906

The Department of Anthropology supports Build a Better Mac

The Department of Anthropology supports the negotiation of a collective agreement for teaching assistants (TAs) and research assistants (RAs) in lieu of TA that ensures fair compensation, secure employment, and positive working conditions so that they can perform their important roles in delivering high quality education and research. We strongly urge that mediation talks scheduled for November 19th between unit 1 bargaining team and McMaster Human Resources lead to a fair deal for our TAs and RAs in lieu.
