The following are achievements that have been negotiated by TAs at the University of Western Ontario with the help of the PSAC:

1. Standardization of TAships allocations across departments

3. The hours of work standardized

4. Rates of pay are negotiated

5. Remuneration for union work

6. A financial aid fund for TAs
