Adrienne is a second year doctoral student in the Faculty of Land and Food
Systems whose research interests include public policy and institutional
food systems. She has held a teaching assistant/course coordinator position
with LFS 250 since she began her graduate degree and is deeply committed to
fair and dignified working conditions and wages that reflect our levels of
education and experience and allow us to maintain a healthy life-work
balance. She looks forward to representing you, the members, at the
negotiating table as a part of an experienced and enthusiastic collective
bargaining committee.

Carter Fang

As an undergraduate student and a new member to CUPE 2278, I hope to
improve working conditions for my fellow graduate and undergraduate
teaching assistants alike. With the upcoming changes concerning
undergraduate TAs, it will be necessary to have undergraduate
representation on the committee. Although my time with the union has been
short, I am confident in my qualities of critical thinking and
perseverance, derived from my studies as an engineer. My experiences as
both a CUPE 2278 executive member and a teaching assistant in the
Mathematics faculty will enable me to well-represent the needs of my peers
and do what is required to achieve positive change.

Bargaining Committee and CUPE Universities Committee meetings regularly
since the summer of 2012. She has experience at the table with UBC HR and
in mediation at the BC Labour Board. She believes that bargaining is at the
heart of the work we do as a union and intends to work with the contract
committee to ensure we are as successful as we can be in this round of
