What? Our International Officer, Avijit Mallick, has been hard at work planning the launch of CUPE 3906’s first-ever Cricket Club! This will occur at our next International Student Night on Friday, February 7th, starting at 5:30 PM in ABB 273.
If you are an international Member of CUPE 3906 (as a TA or RA in-lieu, sessional faculty, or postdoctoral fellow), we would strongly encourage you to attend. Even if you have no interest in cricket, there will be plenty of free food to eat and socializing to do. It’s also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have on matters such as your dental coverage and the $200 UHIP rebate. All related inquiries can be sent to Avijit at email@example.com.

Also note that your signed copy of the opt-out form MUST be submitted with proof of alternate coverage . Our office is located in KTH B111, with a mailbox directly beside the main door for submissions made outside of regular working hours.
