Professional Student TAs Join Unit 1!

Dear Professional Student Teaching Assistants at Queen’s University,


On Tuesday, March 7, 2018, PSAC applied for certification at the Ontario Labour Relations Board on behalf of the Professional Student Teaching Assistants at Queen’s University.


Today, on March 9, 2018, Queen’s University voluntarily recognized Professional Student TAs in the Juris Doctor and Doctor of Medicine programs as falling within the existing PSAC Unit 1 (Teaching Assistants and Teaching Fellows) bargaining unit. 


Consequently, there is no requirement for a representation vote. Wage and stipend rates negotiated for the recently ratified collective agreement between PSAC and Queen’s for Unit 1 will become effective May 1, 2018, but you will receive immediate access to all other protections set out in that collective agreement.


For more information about your new union, and to access the PSAC Local 901 Unit 1 collective agreement, please visit

Congratulations to Professional Student Teaching Assistants on this important step!

Welcome to PSAC Local 901!


For more info please contact PSAC Local 901 President Craig Berggold [email protected]
