Subject: STRIKE VOTE!
After refusing to meet with us for the last two weeks of August
and much of September, the offers that have come from the administration
have fallen short of even maintaining our current contract, let alone
offering any meaningful improvements. At the September 27th GMM a strike
vote was called as a response to these tactics. As the past few rounds of
bargaining have shown, it is often only after the membership sends a
message in the form of a strong strike vote that the administration has
begun to move. Only our willingness to support a strike, and our
willingness to carry it out if necessary, has enabled us to make the
progress we have. Now is the time to defend and continue that progress!
A special Strike Vote GMM has been called for Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 4:30 in the
Senate Chamber. There also will be a Strike Vote GMM at Glendon the same
day at 12:00 in York Hall, B211. Voting will continue until Friday, Oct. 13 in Vari
Link and, at Glendon, outside the cafeteria. Exact times will be confirmed shortly.
