Petition: Say No To Illegal Carleton TA Paycheck Reductions!

Signatures welcome from all Teaching Assistants, students, and allies both on campus and off.

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.
