YUFA, YUSA and CUPE 1356 Issue Joint Letter Defending CUPE 3903 from York University’s Recent Claims

York University’s divide and conquer tactics won’t work here!

Thank you to York University Faculty Association, York University Staff Association and CUPE 1356 for standing strong in our collective fight for a more equitable and accessible York University. This important show of solidarity means a lot.
This joint letter of solidarity defends CUPE 3903 from the Employer’s “use of the agreed-upon multi-party arbitration to publicly shame and isolate” us. In response to the university’s claims of having a budget crisis, the letter also points out that “It seems clear the university does have money in the budget, but it has chosen to spend that money on pay increases for swelling ranks of managers and building a new campus instead of giving workers at the university a fair wage”.
