Teaching and Research Assistant (TA and RA) Delegates are volunteers from all departments and faculties of Concordia University.
On a daily basis, they make sure the Collective Agreement is respected and enforced in different departments.
TRAC trains its delegates each year, and delegates and executives meet each month. During these monthly meetings, we discuss department-related problems and strategies to help make our union stronger and more representative. They also help TRAC executives by helping with events, mobilization, or by participating in committees.
You can refer to the list of TRAC active Delegates below. Is your department missing a Delegate? Would you like to become a TRAC Delegate for your department? Contact us at [email protected]

A Social Delegate is a member who engages in mutual aid with other members who face personal difficulties. They provide peer support based on listening in order to refer their colleagues who express the need to union, community, or professional resources. The help offered is related to substance abuse issues, to the family, to mental health, to indebtedness, and many other situations that our members experience.
Social Delegates form a network at TRAC and across Montreal that can be counted on in our workplace; it helps to improve our well-being as well as quality of life and work.
Goals of the Social Delegate Network:
– Ensure the well-being of our members;
– Offer peer-to-peer, voluntary and confidential assistance;
– Prioritise prevention-based strategies and support.
The Teaching and Research Assistants at Concordia (TRAC) is a labour union local comprising the teaching assistants and research assistants at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebéc.
