Below is the text of our bylaws establishing the Mutual-Aid Hardship Fund. This page will be updated with application information for the current academic year as it becomes available.
ARTICLE 19 – MUTUAL HARDSHIP FUND
Beginning in AY 2020-21, a portion of GTFF member dues will be allocated towards constituting and maintaining a Mutual-Aid Hardship Fund (from now on “the Fund”).
- a) The amount allocated to the Fund is voted annually as part of the yearly budget of the union, but under no circumstances can fall below $10,000.
- b) The union recognizes the hardship that many of our members face during the summer due to a lower number of GE appointments. The Fund is primarily meant to address this hardship.
- c) A Hardship Fund Committee is constituted every year following the approval of the budget in May and holds a mandatory meeting BEFORE July 1 (start of new budget year).
