Reminder: Community Safety Consultation Tomorrow

The Director of Community Safety at York, Samina Sami, is hosting a Community Safety Consultation with CUPE 3903 on Thursday, March 30 from 2-3pm in York Lanes 280A. All members are invited to attend. This meeting came about through a CUPE 3903 Joint Health and Safety meeting where we learned a strategic plan is being developed regarding campus safety at York. We asked for a consultation that is open to all of our members. York says they would like to hear from us about our experiences of safety – or lack of safety – at York. This seems like a good opportunity to ask why our members were not aware of recent bomb threats at Keele and Glendon campuses, and to ask why it took the employer so long to put out a statement condemning the bomb threats and hate graffiti in our workplaces. This is also a space to directly inform York about your experiences of racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia and homophobia on our campuses; to talk about the lack of lighting and the lack of sanding/salting and how that impacts your sense of safety at York; to talk about York’s sexual assault policy – the list goes on. If York wants to know what we think about safety on campus let’s tell them!

What: Community Safety Consultation
When: Thursday, March 20th, 2-3PM
Where: 280A York Lanes
Who: All CUPE members encouraged to attend
