A Day of Organizing: Bad Boss at York

June 10, 2024 @ 10:30 am – 5:00 pm

The strike might be over, but the struggle is not!

RSVP here and join us for A Day of Organizing on Monday, June 10th from 10:30 AM to 5 PM in the Conference Room of the Second Student Centre at York University. This will be a space where we can reflect on what we’ve learned, what difficulties we’re facing in the workplace now, and how to move forward.

York has continually mistreated our members, stonewalled our staff, violated norms of collegial governance, given less to employees, and made it harder for real education to thrive at York. Come build a campaign to keep fighting back!

This event will consist of discussion, brainstorming, and two practical workshops to give you the tools to do activist organizing and run campaigns that confront the bad bosses at York and beyond!

Please RSVP at this link. This will help us plan food ordering and endeavour to meet everyone’s accessibility needs.

  • Learn about the context:

    • What has resistance looked like in CUPE 3903? How will we be ready for the next round of bargaining?

  • Discuss and debate:

    • Consider strategies of how to create a York community that will no longer tolerate bad bosses.

  • Brainstorm ways to mobilize:

    • Plan ways to engage the different segments of our membership to take action.

  • Plan for the future:

    • Collaborate with other members to build a campaign that makes meaningful change.

The conference room is located on the second floor. It is wheelchair accessible and close to wheelchair accessible and gender-neutral washrooms.
