Despite the dramatic increases to the cost of living, wage increases for unionized workers at York University have been capped at 1% per year for three years due to Doug Ford’s unjust Bill 124. This law has now been struck down by the court as they found it violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Join us at the rally to call on the university to negotiate fair wage increases for staff, faculty and graduate student workers now!
We will meet at 12:10 P.M. at outside William Small Centre (near the Tim Hortons) and march together to Kaneff Tower where the president’s office is located. When we arrive in front of Kaneff Tower we will raise our voices to call on the university administration to do what other Ontario universities have done and renegotiate wages for workers affected by Bill 124.
Here is a map illustrating the start and end points of the rally.
