UOITFA Letter of Thanks

A letter of thanks was offered by UOITFA to CUPE 3903 and our members for supporting the UOIT Faculty Association as they embarked on the very first strike in their Association’s history. The following are the contents of the letter:

The UOITFA would like to thank you and members of your association for your
generous donation made to support members of the UOIT Faculty Association as we
embarked on the very first strike in our Association’s history. We could not have done it
without you.

We went on strike committed to getting a fair and equitable deal for our members, that
addressed issues such as workload and pay equity, and because of the amazing shows of
solidarity, we were successful in our endeavour. Your support was an incredible source
of inspiration that helped to strengthen our resolve as we fought to strengthen our
collective agreement. It was so encouraging to know that we were not alone in this fight.

Our fight is your fight, and we look forward to supporting you and the entire post-
secondary sector as we continue our collective fight for better working conditions at
Universities across Canada.
