CUPE 4600 encourages all TAs affected to refuse their consent to having their wages reduced by the Carleton Administration.
Signatures welcome from all Teaching Assistants, students, and allies both on campus and off.
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.
