University operations during the labour disruption

As of February 26, 2024, CUPE 3903 Units 1 (teaching assistants), 2 (contract faculty) and 3 (graduate assistants) have been on strike. The University’s campuses are open and most courses are continuing. The purpose of this site is to provide the most up-to-date information and resources to help the community navigate the labour disruption. Email updates, YFile (for faculty and staff) and the searchable FAQ are your main sources for information. 

We understand many students are concerned about being able to complete their courses on time. University administration is working with Senate Executive Committee to create options for professors to adjust the format of their classes and evaluations in order to enable timely completion where this is a priority for students. Students encouraged to reach out to student services or student services for graduate students.  

Anyone accessing University campuses is exercising their legal right to attend classes, report to work, or to conduct other business or appointments. If you encounter a picket when accessing our campuses, proceed through when you are waved through by those responsible for the picket line. Everyone is reminded remain calm and be respectful of one another.  

Please remember that well-being resources are available for guidance and support for students, graduate students, faculty and staff.
