TSSU put back a proposal late in the evening that makes real progress on our 5 key demands outlined in detail yesterday: compensation to class sizes for remote work, stopping wage theft, winning a pension plan for instructors, eliminating the most offensive equivalencies, and creating a full teaching year for ELC/ITP/ITA instructors.
The ball is back in SFUs court. They need to talk to their academics about guaranteed funding and talk to their pension team about our pension plan. We have given them a pathway to a deal that fits within their mandate. Both sides have expressed that they want to get to a deal tomorrow and we have to keep the pressure up to get there.
See you tomorrow in Burnaby and in Surrey on the picket line.
