Support Striking Workers at York University!

Looking for ways to support contract faculty, graduate/research assistants and teaching assistants at York University?  WE LOVE THAT! 

Contract faculty, Teaching Assistants and Graduate Assistants at York University are on strike since February 26th, 2024. We are asking for decent wages, job security and work-place protections in our fight for a more affordable and accessible high-quality education for all.
