Dear all, I am Karim Soliman, a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Chemical Engineering. I would like to seek your support for my election as a vice president for CUPE 3906.
Mission: Serving and providing support to Mac’s RAs, TAs, sessional faculty and postdocs.
Vision: Coordination of the efforts of the union’s executives for efficient service to all members.
Priorities: During these uncertain times of COVID-19, the CUPE 3906 union will be a wall for all members to lean on. The following will be on-top of my priorities:
- Helping members find a good match of the available TA/RA opportunities.

- Working with the university to amend the collective agreements in favour of the members for guarantee of more work stability.
- Pushing towards achievement of more clearly defined job tasks and a decent minimum hourly pay.
