All YUFA members are encouraged to attend the Rally for Fair Wages at York University on Wednesday September 20 at 12:10 P.M, at the Keele Campus.
Despite the dramatic increases to the cost of living, wage increases for unionized workers at York University have been capped at 1% per year for three years due to Doug Ford's unjust Bill 124. This law has now been struck down by the court as they found it violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Join members of all unions at York University to call on the employer to negotiate fair wage increases for staff, faculty and teaching assistants now!
We will meet at 12:10 P.M. at outside William Small Centre (near the Tim Hortons) and march together to Kaneff Tower where the president's office is located. When we arrive in front of Kaneff Tower we will raise our voices to call on the university administration to do what other Ontario universities have done and renegotiate wages for workers affected by Bill 124. For example, last week the University of Toronto Faculty Association was successful in achieving a 7% pay increase via arbitration. This increase is in addition to a 3% increase under Bill 124.
We look forward to seeing you September 20th.
