On November 15, 2019, SFU and the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) signed a Memorandum of Agreement of Voluntary Recognition (“Agreement”) recognizing TSSU as the union for RAs but up till now, SFU has been delaying the process. The SFSS is calling on SFU to honour the agreement and start the bargaining process with TSSU.
