uWindsor professors support striking colleagues, cancel classes

September 25, 2013

Some classes at the University of Windsor have been cancelled this week after members of the university faculty association elected to respect the picket lines of striking CUPE 1393 workers. According to association President Brian E. Brown, many professors submitted a work plan to their deans explaining how they will make up their cancelled classes. Brown says he is unsure of how many faculty members refused to cross the picket lines or of how many classes were cancelled. CUPE 1393, which represents skilled trades, professional staff, information technology and lab support workers, have been on strike since September 8. uWindsor is keeping students informed of class cancellations via the university’s website and individual emails.
