Working as a TA or TM is, for many, the first experience teaching or working with students, and it is common for TAs and TMs not to know how to respond to new workplace scenarios. This session aims to show new and veteran TAs and TMs how the Collective Agreement informs responses to such situations, and how it protects TSSU members. This workshop will increase participants’ awareness of their roles and responsibilities as a TA or TM, so they come away with strategies and solutions for responding to common scenarios.

Topics will include:
• Responding to common situations encountered by TAs and TMs (e.g., too much marking, or the process for taking sick leave)
• TSSU member rights
• Working and communicating with course supervisors
• TA/TM safety
• Problem solving and conflict resolution
