Abstract

Graduate students employed as teaching assistants, lab demonstrators and research assistants have been attempting to form unions at Canadian universities since the 1970s with varying degrees of success. To date, there has been little scholarly research on this phenomenon, though it naturally begs a number of valid research questions. This thesis asks why some graduate student attempts at unionization fail while others succeed. It uses social movement theory to compare the experiences of four organizing campaigns at four universities.
