Travailleurs-Euses, Étudiant-Es : Même Combat! Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill (AGSEM), 2012-2013 Teaching Assistants' Unit Executive
McGill Journal of Education, v48 n3 p587-595 2013
In the wake of the Québec student movement, graduate students of the 2012-2013 executive team for the Teaching Assistants' Unit of the Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill (AGSEM) reflect on their individual backgrounds and motivations for pursuing union work. With various opportunities for employment on and off campus, what compels academic workers to serve their union; to become accountable to a diverse and growing membership, and to challenge the very institutional machinery upon which our careers can depend? As students, educators, activists, and workers, we reflect on these questions in considering how we have come to the union, why we have become advocates for workers' rights, and the kinds of challenges and successes we experienced. [The 2012-2013 Teaching Assistants' Unit Executives of the Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill are Sunci Avlijas, Cora-Lee Conway, Rosalind Hampton, Megan Mericle, and Justin Marleau.]
