PSAC Local 555 represents all Teaching Assistants (TAs), Research Assistants (RAs), Exam Invigilators (EIs), Sessional Faculty (SFs) and Post Doctoral Fellows (PDFs) at Ontario Tech University.
WHAT IS PSAC?
We are a directly-chartered local of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). Representatives of the local help our members understand and develop their employment relationship with Ontario Tech University. Their work often includes negotiating the terms of the TARA/ EI, the SF and the PDF collective agreements with the employer, upholding worker rights, pursuing violations of the Collective Agreement, and organizing with other unions to promote the interests of academic workers.
We are committed to promoting equity and social justice within Local 555, PSAC, Ontario Tech University, and the broader Oshawa community.
