As you will likely know, CUPE 3902 Unit 1 recently held a strike vote and announced yesterday in a press release that "91% voted in favour of a strike in the event that the University administration fails to offer them a reasonable contract".

The University and the Union are continuing to meet to discuss those areas for which we have not yet reached agreement. We remain hopeful that we will be able to reach an agreement that is "reasonable" not only for CUPE members but also for those academic units that employ Teaching Assistants.

If there are any changes to the status of these negotiations, we will let you know immediately.
