As Cupe Doll has said below. I urge you all to email your TAs and Contract Faculty, pleading to them to show up tomorrow at the GMM and demand and end to this strike. The University has made its final offer and the Union should take this. Please remember that most CUPE members did not vote for this strike (only 22% of the Union voted, and of that only 75% voted for a strike!). The hardcore Union members are extremely intimidating, especially towards Union members who contradict the hard liner agenda. The majority of the Union members NEED TO END THIS STRIKE!
I say again, please email your TAs and Contract Faculty and plead them to go to the GMM tomorrow and demand an end to this strike.
You may copy and paste this generic email:
I am emailing you to urge you and all CUPE 3903 members to go to the Union GMM tomorrow and support York University’s final offer. This strike has lasted for more than two months. Our year has already been acutely effected and a continuation of this strike will not produce anything positive. I recognise and appreciate that you are fighting for improved working conditions and compensation. However, the disturbance this strike is causing undergraduate students is reaching a critical point. This strike has lasted far too long. Please help end it.
One of your students
