Cupe 3903 Strike Video

Live and direct from the front lines!

Guided Tour of Strike Headquarters

This video shows the many activities going on at strike headquarters. Several members express their thoughts on the first day of the strike. One in particular says: “this is one of the most inspiring days ever, seeing that many members out on the picket lines…doing four hour, 8 hour, 12 hour shifts because they don’t want to go home…that’s unbelievable, these people have inexhaustible energy, that’s because they believe in the union!!”

  1. I must say that my two favourite parts of this vid are 1) Irina flipping the bird, and 2) the honking in support of York Blvd. – we hear you on the line & appreciate it!

  3. Hello brothers and sisters of CUPE 3903:

    I am a member of the cupe diaspora and watching these videos makes me nostalgic for the strike. I always tell everyone that I graduated in equal measure from CUPE 3903 and York. You people are truly a union that one can feel proud of. Fight to win!
