Update!

So our anonymous tipster has informed me that CityNews should be officially announcing the strike at 11:00 PM tonight. The negotiations have, apparently, broken off in lieu of non cooperation from the employer. I will keep you updated as I get further information.

    “The offer isn’t very appealing, so at this point it looks like picket lines will be set up in the morning,” said [Christina] Rousseau [Chair of CUPE 3903], who said the union expects to reveal its plans by about 11 p.m. tonight. The union is in a legal strike position at 12.01 a.m. tomorrow.

    I don’t want to sound like an old lady, and I’m normally a night owl, but doesn’t it seem unfair to everyone that they’re making us wait until midnight to find out if they’re striking on a school night? I know there are others like me, having a hard time reviewing for their tests tomorrow, or writing their essays and such, and if it falls through, it’ll be midnight and we’ll all be fried. It just seems wrong to me.

    yeah i’ve been “writting” my paper all night… it’s very distracting, when you don’t really have a for sure deadline…

    From the Face book group:

    Hello all. As of about 5 minutes ago, the membership of CUPE 3903 has voted overwhelmingly to go out on strike. Therefore, the bargaining team/executive team has taken the direction of the membership, and have voted unanimously to strike.

    The university’s final offer is not only less than we deserve, it takes away many of the wages/benefits/funds we have previously earned. Therefore, we encourage the university to come back to the bargaining table with a substantially better offer that more fully reflects the extent of the work that we do.

    Those of you that have signed up for 7 am picket duty, please show up ready to picket! Even if you have not signed up, please show up if you are available.

    As well, please be aware of a Strike Rally that will be happening tomorow at 9 am, at the main entrance of York. This rally will have speakers, information, food, etc. There will be media in attendance, and its really important we show the university that we stand united together against a university that is determined to break us.

    See you all on the lines!!~

    I agree I don’t want to wait and see if I have to pull an all nighter or not I just want to know

  8. I go to another university, who’s name should not be said, I can understand the frustration a lot of you are having…I’d hate to have the school year extended, especially during the summer. But assuming this strike is a short one, you guys and gals would be lucky to have a pseudo-break.
    Hell, I know I’d like a week or two off.
