We are the University of Saskatchewan Sessional Lecturers’ Union. Through collective bargaining, we strive to provide our members with the fair wages and working conditions they deserve. Our members never stop working for their students, and we never stop advocating for their rights. Fair representation for sessional lecturers improves quality of education for our students and strengthens our University community.
