Both Classification A members (i.e., members holding an undergraduate degree) and Classification B members (i.e., members not holding an undergraduate degree) may vote. Also, the following members of Unit 1 may vote in a ratification vote:
- Members who are working as TAs or RAs (in lieu) this term;
- Members who hold a TA/RA (in lieu) funding guarantee or a contract to work as a TA/RA (in lieu) in the 2016-2017 academic year (i.e., “contract in hand”).
