About The Event
Thirty years of AGSEM leads up to this: bargaining this year, amidst huge inflation, for an enormous raise. Our power has built over the years, through our struggles. Our future is built on our past.
Join AGSEM for a guided exhibition tour and a celebratory march for our 30 year anniversary! We’ll learn from our past while showing McGill and ourselves all the ways we will rise in solidarity into the future.
Spots limited. RSVP required.
Please wear comfortable shoes.
The tour will begin at the Y intersection in front of the Arts building and will end at Thomson House.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the union, the Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill is excited to present a glimpse of our history in the public exhibition “From the AGSEM Archives: 30 Years of Graduate Student Labour Organizing at McGill.“
Building upon graduate student workers' organizing efforts since the 1970s, AGSEM led a successful card-signing campaign to become certified with the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN) in 1992, and began collective bargaining as a certified union in 1993.
Consisting of four installations in various locations on McGill's downtown campus, the exhibition highlights initiatives of graduate student labour organizing at McGill, situating the union within broader networks of solidarity in Quebec.
For future walking tour dates, please check AGSEM website.
Dates will be announced in early November.
