Please see the message below from our fellow union members on campus in the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC):
I am sure you have heard by now that the university has proposed a tuition increase for graduate students at a rate of 10% per year for the next 5 years. Nearly a thousand of the affected graduate students are PSAC members. We recognize that all graduate students struggle to make ends meet at times. We fear that this will put many of our members that are already in a precarious position in a very difficult situation.
There is a petition being circulated around campus to urge the Board of Governors to reconsider this proposal and the affects it will have on students and programs across campus. I would ask that you please take the time to sign it.
