Can You Spot the Differences?

Frequently Asked Questions (distributed by the administration of McGill University, 4 April, 2008):
1. My TA says that if they go on strike I cannot grade exams and assignments.
That is incorrect. Grading is part of your function. It is not exclusive to the function of TAs.
Frequently Asked Questions (as posted on the McGill University website sometime in the last week--I first noticed it on Thursday, 17 April):

1. My TA says that if they go on strike I cannot grade exams and assignments. Is this true?

That is incorrect, unless you have fully delegated that task to a TA. Grading is part of your function. It is not exclusive to the function of TAs. If you have fully delegated that function to a TA, please bring the matter to the attention of your Chair.

I sense trouble for the University's legal argument...
