Here is a letter that has been circulating by email and in the blogosphere:
To all 3903 members and allies:
THIS IS AN URGENT APPEAL FOR ACTION!
The threat of Provincial back to work legislation is now very real – a Queen’s Park leak tells us the Liberals are preparing the legislation and will not wait for a forced rat vote to recall the house. This is bad news for us and our contract and worse news for the collective bargaining rights of all public sector workers in Ontario. It would mean binding arbitration for us in the immediate and a precedent that a recession means public service/ sector workers lose our legal right
to strike and bargain.
Let’s mobilize on all fronts against this. All actions for Monday need to account for this new reality and shift messaging accordingly. See 3903strike.ca for talking points and phone numbers/ emails at Queen’s Park to call and write to immediately.
Also Please weigh in on today’s CP 24 poll question:
Should the provincial government step in to force binding arbitration
and end the York strike?

I urge you all to go and vote your OWN opinion here at http://www.cp24.com/. If there is consensus it will be well utilised most effectively here at a major news outlet.
In solidarity with undergrads,
