YorkU refuses to communicate progress of negotiations…

Negotiations continuing: a reminder and a correction to media reports

TORONTO, January 4, 2009 — York University wishes to emphasize that it will not be commenting on the progress of negotiations between the University and CUPE 3903 while these negotiations are taking place.

The reason for this is to protect the integrity of the negotiations process which is complex, delicate and highly iterative. It is not helpful to the negotiations process for details of the ongoing discussions to be published while the two parties are at the table.

Secondly, contrary to recent media reports, any resumption of classes is governed by the University Senate and classes cannot resume until after a tentative settlement has been ratified by the Union’s general membership.

Students should verify any media or blog speculation by checking http://www.yorku.ca. Details regarding Senate Executive academic remediation plans can be found at http://www.yorku.ca/secretariat/Strike2008/Bulletin%206%20UPDATED.pdf.
