Dear CUPE 1230:

We were not at the table yesterday, Thursday, March 14, 2024 from 9AM-1PM. We had requested up-to-date membership pay distribution data during Monday’s negotiation but did not receive it from the University in a timely manner. Since this data was critical for us to formulate a well-informed counter proposal, we chose to cancel negotiations as they would not be fruitful.

Once we received the information at 10AM, we took this time to work on our counter proposal.

We have requested more bargaining dates for next week and will continue to keep you posted. Join us in taking action! Our collective action determines our power at the bargaining table and the collective agreements we win.

📢 Take action NEXT WEEK 📢

  • EVERYDAY: Wear your buttons until we get a contract. Don’t have one? We will be bringing some more around come Monday.
  • MON-WED: Sign the petition if you haven’t already! Final stretch!
    • Thu, Mar 21, 12-1PM. Location + details TBD.
  • FRIDAY: Bring your questions, comments, and energy to the General Membership Meeting (GMM).
    • Fri, Mar 22, 12-2PM. Blackburn room, Robarts 4F.
In solidarity,
CUPE 1230 Student Casual and Full-Time & Part-Time Bargaining Teams
