November 6, 2008, 3:37 PM EST
All CAW university units across the country and the Educational Technical Office and Professional (ETOP) Council are giving their full support to striking teaching assistants, contract faculty and graduate assistants at York University. CUPE 3903 went on strike November 6.
"Members of CUPE 3903 have the solidarity and support of the CAW and we will provide whatever assistance they request," said CAW National President Ken Lewenza.
"What is happening at York University today is another example of the continued attack on university workers and their right to job security and fair working conditions" Lewenza added.
Please send a letter to York President Mamdouh Shoukri at firstname.lastname@example.org urging him to resolve this dispute and reach a fair deal for the members of CUPE 3903.
Messages of support for CUPE 3903 can be sent care of CAW National Representative Mina Sarajcic: email@example.com
The CAW represents support staff, skilled trades and special constables at seven universities across the country
