The York University Staff Association (YusApuY) and CUPE 1356 Joint Communication

The York University Staff Association (YusApuY) and CUPE 1356 Joint Communication

We are writing this communiqué to our respective memberships to advise you of your right and responsibilities in the event that CUPE 3903 is on strike.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact you union through regular channels; voice mail and email will be checked regularly.

It is expected that you will report to work at your regularly scheduled time. It is likely that you will encounter delays at all of the entrances of the University – please exercise patience and understanding while waiting to gain entrance to the University.

In the event that you are late as a direct result of the labour dispute, please contact your Supervisor upon your arrival. You will not suffer any loss of compensation, nor will your time be deducted.

It is important that you recognize the legal right to strike of our CUPE 3903 brothers and sisters.

We should all recognize that this action is not the first choice of CUPE 3903, or that of any union. After many months of negotiating with this employer, similar to that of YusApuY and CUPE 1356, this employer continues to demand concessions.

All of the bargaining units have been under attack in recent months and it is crucial that we demonstrate to this employer our support and solidarity for our fellow community members.

In Solidarity,

Jack McCann.......Joanie Cameron Pritchett
CUPE 1356...........YusApuY
