Remember, Remember the 11th of December

Don’t forget to come out tomorrow at 2PM outside of the Schulich School of Business to Rally the Senate. You will see a whole bunch of people so don’t be shy and come join us! Even if you don’t have a sign your presence is voice enough.

Hope to see you all there!

Good night

    YorkStrike2008, you should email ALL the media outlets (TV and newspapers and radio) and invite them to the rally. Press coverage is always good for our cause.

  3. naw yo bun that idea. just chillax and everything will take care of itself. until then have a dance with maryJ and let the uplifting sounds of your friends and dream trance lift you to a greater place.

  7. good to see ppl coming out and getting the voices of the students heard. kudos.
    i wont be attending however.

    i think its common knowledge now that we will be going back in mid jan. looks like that back to work legislation will get our asses back in classes

    @ mike

    I’m confused… how do you figure that? It seems contradictory- we’d be back mid-January, but because of back-to-work legislation?! The legislature is shutting down today… no sign of back-to-work legislation.

    I heard Chuck Swirsky is coming?

  12. @ arber

    ill be there if you show up.

  13. Chuck Swirsky lives and works in Chicago now :S.


    Every day it looks more and more likely that we will have this semester cancelled. Meaning I will have wasted 3 months of schooling for nothing. I think that if this semester is cancelled the University should pay all thier students for time wasted at school for no reason. I am barely getting by right now and if this semester extends into the summer i will be losing over 1000 a week which is what allows me to break even and save for the following year. I just hope this ends soon or else i will have some serious problems such as planning my wedding for 2010 which was the year i was suppost to graduate but if semester gets cancelled it will put more unneeded pressure on my shoulders. Yet again Thank You York for being inconsiderate and Selfish and caring so much about students neededs and not your own right

    Basically, when I petitioned and handed out flyers yesterday. I told students the rally was very loose and that they could bring a sign, or just be present to show the senate that the care about their academic school year. I also, invited students who may have specific concerns or demands to write them down on a piece of paper and try to hand them to a senate member when they are going to the meeting.

  22. anonymous

    awesome thanks for the info

  23. Confused....

  24. anonymous

  30. Sug

    What can we do in the next few days to push for classes to resume before the drop dead date of Dec.15th?


  31. Ridculous

    @ All

    Just got back and I saw the red signs good job. The petition is gathering signatures and can be submitted to the secretary for the senate executive committee which meets this coming Tuesday.
    Post here if you want details and I will provide my e-mail to those interested in helping.

    NOTE: The next senate meeting is January 10, 2009 (diff. from senate executive meeting). The meeting are open to all York university members (which includes all students) due to the strike the meeting ends with a town hall where concerns, questions can be brought forth.
