Dear Colleagues,

The CUPE 3903 strike has caused stress and confusion for members, as well as for other members of the campus community.

Please treat colleagues, students, staff, CUPE 3903 members and others with patience and understanding. 

YUFA has negotiated a range of health and wellness benefits for members. Please consider these in order to safeguard your wellbeing during these trying times.

If you have concerns or questions, please write to YUFA at [email protected] or call 416-736-5236.

Items and suggestions for the next YUFA Newsletter are appreciated. Please send these along to Thomas Klassen, the YUFA Communications Officer, by March 22, 2024.

YUFA will be sending out a survey on communications in the coming weeks. Please watch for an email from [email protected]. Members who complete the survey will have an opportunity to enter their name for a draw to win one of two York University Bookstore $50 gift certificates .
