On behalf of the executive council of Local 4600, the Union of Teaching Assistants and Contract Instructors at Carleton University, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new and returning members for the upcoming academic year.
Contract Instructors can access several benefits and funds as members of CUPE 4600.
All Teaching Assistants at Carleton University can access several funds and benefits as members of CUPE 4600.
Signatures welcome from all Teaching Assistants, students, and allies both on campus and off.
CUPE 4600 encourages all TAs affected to refuse their consent to having their wages reduced by the Carleton Administration.
On Friday, February 3rd, CUPE 4600 was contacted by Carleton University's Human Resources Department and informed they plan to begin reducing TA paychecks starting this month. This is due to the Employer, Carleton University, making a significant error for the last two years in the calculation of the tuition increase rebate established under Article 23.04 of the Collective Agreement.

A great way to get invoved in your union is to become a member of one of the many committees or caucuses, which are active on a range of topics including Political Action, Health & Safety, Womyn's issues, and more.
