New GSU Member Fees
Please be advised that starting this semester, your member fees have increased from $20 per semester to $30 semester. This change was approved by referendum on April 1 and is the first member fee increase since 1989. Compared with other graduate associations, we remain below the national average. The additional revenue will ensure that we can maintain and improve our services, such as conference funding, while offering meaningful student employment. Going forward, our fees will be tied to the Canadian Price Index (CPI). This will ensure that a major increase of GSU member fees will no longer be necessary.
Renewal Agreement for TAUMUN
The first Collective Agreement for TAs at MUN expires at the end of August. TAUMUN is ready to bargain a renewal agreement and will be electing a bargaining team at a membership meeting on Thursday, May 30, at 5 p.m. in the MUNSU Council Chambers (UC-2001).
In order to assist the team in preparing for negotiations, TAUMUN has developed a survey for members to complete. This will help the bargaining team to understand the needs and priorities of our members.
This is important. The new Collective Agreement will establish wages and working conditions for TAs for the next three or so years.The survey should take no more than two minutes to complete. Please fill out and submit the survey as soon as possible, but in any case no later than Friday, May 17, 2013.
