At a meeting Monday, members of CUPE Local 2626, which represents teaching assistants, research assistants, correctors, and lab monitors, voted to give their bargaining committee the tool to negotiate a fair agreement. Nearly 120 members showed up at the meeting, and over 81% voted in favour of a strike mandate. The union and employer's representatives met yesterday with the help of a conciliator in hopes that a third, objective party might assist with reaching a fair contract. CUPE News Release
