McGill teaching assistants approve agreement in principle

Last week, McGill University and the Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill–which represents about 1,600 teaching assistants–reached a tentative agreement. The union voted 75% in favour of the agreement in principle. According to the Canadian Press, the new collective agreement will run until July 2027. It includes a wage increase of 15.5% over four years and features “guarantees of transparency in the allocation of teaching assistant budgets.” This agreement brings an end to the AGSEM strike, which began at the end of March.
