york university strike

York University strike could soon be coming to an end

York University is still on strike, but a renewed bargaining session may see union members return to work.

University administrators are set to meet with members of CUPE 3903 tomorrow after signalling to a mediator that they were ready to re-enter negotiations.

Ongoing since earlier this month, the union representing 3,700 members has been on strike over issues surrounding job security, funding, and "prioritizing equity, anti-racism, and anti-sexual violence on campus."

York has maintained that despite the strike, classes would be continuing and the school would remain open, but now it appears they are looking to put an end to the strike that has started to have an effect on classes.

Both sides have already rejected offers put forth, the most recent of which saw York reject a counter offer by the union that has stalled negotiations until now.

Conversely, the union maintains the initial offer did not address fundamental issues such as working conditions for both themselves and students.

The renewed negotiations are set for March 20.
