SCARBOROUGH – MARCH 19, 2015- Scarborough students are gathering in the Arts and Administration Building of the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus protesting the unlivable wages and unfair treatment of striking teaching assistants and course instructors. The students say that these issues are related to high tuition fees for both domestic and international students, and the University acting as a corporation, rather than a public institution.

“The University of Toronto has ensured wage increases for administrators, most of whom make well over $200,000,” said Tahsin Chowdhury, President of the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union. “Combined with the University’s investments in weapon manufacturers and fossil fuels as well as the refusal to pay a decent wage to our teachers, I have to question whether or not this is a school or a corporation.”

The students are demanding a tuition fee refund for canceled classes, tutorials and labs. “International students are now paying five times the tuition fees as domestic students for cancelled classes and tutorials,” continued Chowdhury. “Graduating students are unsure whether or not they will be convocating.”

The students are protesting in solidarity with their teaching assistants.

The Scarborough Campus Students’ Union represents 11,000 students at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus.
