Strike Vote Results

We are happy and excited to announce to you all the results of the U5 Strike Vote. A solid 87.5% voted “YES” to support the Bargaining team with a Strike Mandate.

We have conciliation meeting dates from March 27 & 29-30. The bargaining team will meet with the Employer and a provincial conciliation officer, and convey that post-docs will not take no for an answer.

In the meantime, we will be holding a meeting for the Bargaining Support Committee next week. All U5 post-docs are encouraged to attend. We will be discussing future mobilization strategies and events.

When? Wednesday, 22 March 2017, 6-7 pm
Where? CUPE 3902 office, 180 Bloor Street West, Suite 803 (8th floor)
