There has been escalating action in last 2 months and it is getting serious now. There is strong sspeculation among TA's that the union is going to go to a pass fail system for grades. So basically at the end of the semester, students will not get an actual GPA rather a pass or fail with there GPA staying stagnant at whatever it was. This causes issues for those of us working our tails off this semester trying to get our GPA up because all of that effort will not accredited. Rather the cumulative GPA will be the same as what it was at end of last semester.
The only thing that might save this from happening is if students decide to sue the university. One of my professors was telling me that he thinks SFU will cave in or work out a deal simply because SFU students would have a real case and would probably win any lawsuit that they threw to try toget their grades. He thinks SFU lawyers will realize the possibility for them to get burnt in any lawsuit thrown there way and as a result they will have to work out a deal. The basis for the lawsuit would be students saying there is an implied contract when we give our money to SFU. We give them money for them to give us grades and simply going to a pass fail system doesnt constitute as an actual grade
I need your folks opinion. Do you think students at SFU could win if they decided to sued the university for not getting there grades
