uWindsor students rally during ongoing strike

October 2, 2013

Several hundred students rallied at the University of Windsor on Tuesday to protest the ongoing skilled trades and professional staff strike, which has disrupted some classes and services. The rally was organized by the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (USWA). According to CTV news, the student union is taking a pro-student stance and not backing the university or the striking CUPE 1393. “The UWSA wants to inform students of their rights during the strike, to strongly encourage both sides to return to the bargaining table and demand students be compensated for the services lost over the last month,” said UWSA President Rob Crawford. Meanwhile, uWindsor recruiters were turned away from a Catholic high school this week because CUPE 1393 had allegedly requested that the recruitment sessions be put on hold. CTV (student rally) |CTV (recruitment)
