We want to hear from you!

The Bargaining Support Committee is asking Sessional Instructors to share their stories with us. The brief testimonials will be shared on social media in order to build awareness and solidarity as we head into conciliation.

If you want your voice heard, just submit a 2 to 3 sentence answer to the question: What does _______ mean to you? (Fill in the blank with ANY of the six bargaining prioritiesrespect, equity, and inclusion; compensation; job security; health and wellbeing; workload; and professional supports and paid training.)

Send your testimonials to the Bargaining Support Committee at bargainingsupport@cupe3906.org

We’d love for you to draw on your own personal experience as a sessional instructor.

We want people to see that these bargaining priorities are not just abstract concepts, but that they make a real, tangible impact on the lives of our members.

Are you a CUPE 3906 member looking to get more involved with your union? Are you an undergraduate student or community member with an interest in building a more just and equitable campus for all?

Then consider joining our Bargaining Support Committee!

The Bargaining Support Committee meets regularly to plan events and activities in support of the local’s bargaining teams. Our aim is to engage and activate our members, to educate the broader McMaster community on the issues facing teaching assistants, research assistants, and postdoctoral fellows, and to build a coalition that will help us win better working and learning conditions for workers and students alike. This is why we call our campaign a fight for a #BetterMac.
