CUPE 4600 represents all Teaching Assistants, internally-funded Research Assistants, and Contract Instructors at Carleton University. It is the largest union on campus, with nearly 3000 members.

They have been on strike since Monday, March 27 in their fight for:

  • Fair pay
  • Protecting their intellectual property when designing online courses
  • Better health benefits plans, retirement savings, and emergency funds

The Transgender Media Lab stands in solidarity with CUPE 4600. They do essential work at the university and their demands should be met immediately!
