ACTION ALERT: JOIN YORK UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS, CAMPUS GROUPS, AND ALLIES
THIS MONDAY TO SUPPORT CUPE 3903 STRIKE!
WHAT: Solidarity march and picket / WHEN: Monday, Nov 10 @ 10 am / WHERE:
Main Picket – We will be meeting in front of York Boulevard and Keele St
(the main gate and picket-line of York University) at 9 am sharp!
TO UNDERGRADS, CAMPUS GROUPS, AND ALLIES:
A small group of York undergraduate students will be organizing a counter
demonstration directed against CUPE 3903 on Monday at 10 am (see details
below) due to what is being perceived as an inconvenience to students
expecting to graduate at the end of this academic year.
As a demonstration of solidarity with CUPE 3903 and its strike demands (such
as job security and a living wage), a wide array of undergraduate students,
campus groups, and allies in the York community are also being asked to join
together on Monday in a solidarity march and picket to neutralize any counter
We hope that a strong undergraduate presence on Monday morning will help to
show the administration (and the media, whose coverage has been quite
slanted thus far) that we are behind our TA’s and that we support CUP 3903’s
So this little alert/message was sent to me from somewhere in cyber space. It looks like the union (or a group of the members) are planning to “neutralise any counter demonstration.” Such militaristic language.
