Research is Work
Research Assistants at Simon Fraser University (SFU) are organizing with the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU). VDLC supports the efforts of RA's to unionize and calls on SFU not to attempt to interfere the RA's exercising their rights as workers to do so. Research is Work!
A copy of a letter sent by VDLC President Stephen von Sychowski to SFU President Professor Andrew Pedder is available HERE.
UPDATE: On November 19, TSSU announced that they had achieved an agreement for voluntary recognition from SFU. Congratulations to all those who participated in this campaign!
