If you do not have a GTA/GRA appointment you can join CGE as an Associate Member. Often people on fellowships choose to become Associate Member as their work standards and benefits on fellowships are positively impacted by CGE’s efforts and negotiations. Associate Members have all the same rights and privileges within CGE as full members, except our contract does not cover you as a worker and Associate Members cannot vote on contract ratifications for this reason. You can still serve as a steward, Executive Council officer, join a caucus and even propose the formation of new caucuses.
Monthly dues for Associate Members are $10, and you can sign up in-person or online.
