Collective Agreement Cupe 3902

In 1973, the university administration recommended a 6% salary increase for all academic staff except LAs. The Graduate Students` Union (GSU) tried to get the university administration to negotiate with them, but the administration refused. Thus, on June 6, 1973, a group of 7 TAs came together to form what became CUPE 3902. With a group of volunteers and financial assistance from the GSU (which paid an organizer`s salary), they organized to create a union, the first for student university workers in Canada.
