My university is on strike right now. The union is CUPE 3903; the teaching and graduate assistants, and the contract faculty. Public opinion is very much against them – even some of our radical left are shaking their heads. I’m in an odd position – I support the strikers, and yet I’m gritting my teeth in exasperation toward them. It’s not easy fighting York Incorporated’s campus-wide smear campaign, and it’s never easy dealing with disgruntled undergrads, but I must say: the CUPE 3903 strike campaign this year is an unmitigated PR disaster.
