Student Code of Conduct Update

Last Tuesday, October 9,  the 5 CUPE 3903 members and the 3 undergraduate students facing reprisals by York met with the Office of Student Community Relations (OSCR) for an informal mediation. While the parties are currently engaged in an ongoing confidential process in the hopes of settling the complaints, it should be noted that our members and the undergraduates had initially requested informal mediation months ago, in August, and the University then rejected this request.

In response to York’s blatant attempt to punish our members’ and allies for exercising their democratic rights in holding the senior administration to account for their actions during the strike, CUPE 3903 has filed both a grievance and an Unfair Labour Practice (ULP) complaint. CUPE 3903 stands with those who are being singled out by York’s administration and we will be updating the membership once we get more information
