Vision Statement (May 2015)
The Teaching Assistants Union is a labor union comprised of all graduate teaching assistants at Western Michigan University. We collectively defend and preserve the rights of all teaching assistants, ensuring the fair enforcement of our contract. Through a participatory model of democratic self-governance, we empower each other in order to fulfill the responsibilities we owe to our fellow members, our university, and our society. We are committed to justice and solidarity, and we collaborate as researchers, educators, and union members in pursuit of these ideals on campus and in the broader community.
We are stronger together.
