by R. Dubois last modified Mar 25, 2015 08:36 AM
"Given the rejection of the most recent tentative agreement by members of CUPE3902, I am cancelling my participation in the Munk School of Global Affairs Graduate Student Conference on Thursday, March 26. I join the faculty members, undergraduate students and their families, writers, thinkers, and politicians from all parties and levels of government in calling on the University of Toronto Administration to improve its offer and come to the bargaining table to end the legal labour action of the 6,000 education workers of CUPE3902."

What's Left This Week March 22, 2015 | Citizens' Press

by Graham H. Cox last modified Mar 23, 2015 08:02 AM
