SUNY: More pay awaits SUNY teaching assistants: "The union representing graduate student teaching assistants at SUNY New Paltz says a provision in a proposed contract will give its members pay parity with counterparts at the system's university centers. The proposed new contract does not include a pay parity clause, but it establishes a fund of $700,000 to be spent over four years to boost salaries for graduate student teaching assistants at the colleges. According to Local 1104 chief negotiator and Executive Vice President Kathleen Sims, money from the fund is expected to boost average salaries for the grad students to an average of $7,000 per year, which is in line with union demands."
