Solidarity Rally – November 17

On November 17, 2008, hundreds of university students and workers from across southern Ontario rallied at Main Gate in support of striking CUPE 3903 members. “We know what happens on this campus will impact what happens on other campuses,” says one Ryerson student representative.  A York undergrad declares, “we’re going to keep coming to the lines, every day of this struggle, for as long as it takes!”

Letters from the Lines – Micki

In this video, a letter is read from Micki, a member who was part of the strike in 2000-2001. Micki shares some words of wisdom gained through her time on the picket lines. Some of her suggestions include: wear lots of layers, wear plastic bags inside your boots, wear something old and beat up as your top layer, don’t hang around the metal barrel too long, spend at most an hour at a time pamphleting cars, and don’t worry about not doing academic work during the strike. She concludes her letter by sending her support and solidarity to the members of CUPE 3903.
