On February 28, the York University Board of Governors will be meeting to discuss the presidential search. It is almost certain that they will ratify the university’s new president at this meeting. In the past, CUPE 3903, as part of the Cross Campus Alliance, has criticized the lack of transparency and consultation in the presidential search process. Now is our opportunity to demand a seat at the table.
We encourage all of our members to send an email to the board secretary Elaine MacRae at firstname.lastname@example.org telling her you would like to be at the meeting. This is a public meeting open to the whole York community where members of the Cross Campus Alliance will be in attendance. Regardless of whether or not you can attend, this will show the board of governors that teaching assistants, contract faculty, graduate assistants, and part-time librarians and archivists at York care about this presidential search and we want our voices heard.
The meeting will be held on February 28th at 1:30pm on the 5th floor of Kaneff Tower.
