161 | Solidarity forever

April 25, 2018

Over the past 8 months, the labour union of Western Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) has led them in a fight against the university for better living standards. With the onset of final examinations, GTA labour is more crucial than ever. Yet, both sides are unwilling to bend, risking a lockout or a strike. How did things get here? Join Ariel and Nav on today's episode while they untangle this story with Shannon Potter, President of the GTA labour union and Dmitri Marin, a member of the Bargaining Team. 

 To contact the bargaining team, you can email them at gta.bt@psac610.ca
