TRAC has had a very busy year, so this will be a busy GA! We thank you in advance for your patience and support throughout the meeting. Members are invited to receive updates on their union, to elect a new executive committee for the year 2019-2020, to approve the by-laws reform proposition, to approve the establishment of a new Equity Working Group at TRAC, and to take a position on Bill 9.

Don’t forget to bring your student ID or pay stub for identification purposes.

We regret to inform that we cannot grant access to bursary-paid RAs who are not covered by TRAC. If you are not on Concordia University’s payroll and would like to confirm your union membership, please contact [email protected].

Dinner will be provided at the Meet & Greet at 5:30 pm (including vegetarian, vegan, kosher, and halal options). Drinks will be provided at the After-Party.
