  • R&D GAs are unionized positions represented by CUPE 3907 (room 8-104; Ph.416-978-2403; cupe3907@gmail.com)
  • Most R&D GA positions are posted in June for the academic year with a few being offered in the summer session.
  • A GA pays $6,132.06 per term (approximately 10 hours per week – 120 hours per term).
