Union rejects YorkU’s latest offer

April 11, 2018

Contract workers have rejected York University’s latest offer, CBC reports. 72% of the union membership reportedly voted in the “forced ratification vote,” and according to the Globe and Mail, “three-quarters to two-thirds” of the three units represented by CUPE rejected the deal. "It was the same offer that we rejected five weeks ago,” CUPE 3903 Treasurer Suj Sriskandarajah told CBC. In a statement, YorkU said it was “deeply disappointed” in the result. “CUPE 3903 continues to maintain positions and proposals that are unreasonable, including wage increases of 3.5 per cent a year, proposals to limit academic excellence and over 30 other demands,” YorkU added. CBC | Globe and Mail | YorkU
