York Stops Bargaining – Issues Forced Ratification

Members from the executive and bargaining team, as well as a few CUPE staff, speak about the Forced Ratification Vote that was called by York University on January 9, 2009. All express the importance of VOTING NO at the forced rat vote on January 19.

Tyler, a member of the executive states: “We all came together yesterday, over 500 members, and over 90 percent of us said this deal is totally inadequate, and yet here we are having to go back and vote on it… We are now into the 10th week of a strike, and until this last week, York met with us a total of 4 or 5 days, in 10 weeks! We were finally start to see some progress, as soon as it came to the point where we are getting close to signing off on things, York walks away from the table. It shows a lack of good will on the part of the university to really address the important issues that we are talking about!”

York’s Inadequate Offer

Members discuss the inadequacies of York’s current offer.

One says that “there were a lot of things that were left totally unaddressed!” Another puts the very few positive elements of the offer in perspective: “Yes they have made some minor movement on things like funds…but all they have done is taken us back to levels where we lost money…even its most positive elements is just a restoration of some of the things that this union has lost over the last 10 years! So I think this membership should not be willing to accept this deal just because it looks a little less crappy than the last one. A less crappy deal is still a crappy deal!”
