TRU staff vote in favour of strike action

September 11, 2012

Thompson Rivers University employees represented by CUPE 4879 have voted 83% in favour of strike action, with 68% of the union's 607 members taking part in the vote. Now that the strike mandate has been approved, the union can apply for a 72-hour strike notice that will place it in a legal position to initiate job action on campus. The main issues for the union include job security, inflation protection, and a fair and reasonable wage increase. CUPE News Release
