TA Work LogTeaching Assistants are often asked to take on extra work, outside their allotted hours, particularly towards the end of term, when there are outstanding papers or exams to grade. If you do take on extra work, you have the right to be paid for it. The TA Work Log can help you track your hours, and go a long way towards strengthen your argument for additional pay in the event you’re asked to take on extra work.
As well, the TA Work Log can help you track the type of work you’re actually doing, which may differ from the tasks listed on your Assignment of Duties form. At the start of each term, TA’s are provided with an Assignment of Duties form, which describes the actual work you’re being hired to do (i.e. running a lab, marking, leading tutorials). Tracking the type of work you’re doing via the TA Work Log can assist you and and your union in resolving any issues that might arise from the addition of duties you were not originally contracted to take on.
