The majority of you have voted to have some sort of movement to have school restart in January. That would be ideal for many people, including me, however after reading many opinions and comments on the matter (below) I am going to tend to agree with everyone who says once the Admin and the Union come to an agreement classes will start asap. That, I unfortunately believe is inevitable.
Perhaps, it would be much more feasible and towards the same goal to have our objective be to keep Reading Week. Not only is it more feasible to get the admin to agree to but it makes the cause more accessible for those who have special arrangements for second term and more representative of all undergrad students. It seems as though that would satisfy everybody here. We are all trying to salvage some good from this year and I am trying to give the best representation of York Undergrads.
The underlying point of the matter is that we want the union and the admin to know that we are not sheep! We should not be herded around as such. The strike is a bad situation for everyone but they cannot resume everything like all is well and dandy.
To have this movement we need a clear and well defined objective and constituency. I believe this is the most accessible demand, it is more feasible and will represent the most York Undergraduate students.
If the majority of you seem to agree I will go ahead and draft a petition tomorow and post it on here for reviewing.
