CUPE Local 3903 Negotiation Discussion

York contract faculty is furious over the university's latest move to freeze graduate tuition.

York Teaching Assistants (TAs), represented by CUPE Local 3903 union, are calling the tuition freeze a ruse to get them to give up tuition indexation - a guarantee that if tuition goes up, TA wages would go up by an equivalent amount or a rebate will be provided to make up the difference. A tuition freeze would essentially give the TAs the same benefit as tuition indexation, thus rendering any indexation wording in their agreement redundant.

The CUPE Local 3903 site has little to add.
