Rank-and-file members of CUPE 3903, along with members of the Bargaining Mobilization Committee, the Executive Committee and staff, mobilized in a show of support for the Bargaining Team (BT) at this week’s bargaining meeting with the Employer. Members from all three units, representing a range of departments, from History to Biology to Equity Studies and others, carried 3903 flags and banners to the meeting, and were present throughout the discussion.

Earlier in the day, the BT and supporters met at the CUPE 3903 office to share updates and review strategy. Afterwards, they went as a group to the bargaining meeting, where they were joined by even more supporters from the local.

BT members are preparing a full report from this week’s bargaining meeting, which will be posted online and sent to members shortly.

In the meantime, please mark your calendars! The next important event in the local’s bargaining calendar is the Special General Membership Meeting on bargaining, which will take place on Friday, September 12 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Keele campus. The location will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.
