Strike Vote Result and Call for Strike Committee

Despite the University refusing space for GTA assembly, after 14 strike vote sessions (most standing room only) Graduate Teaching Assistants have delivered an overwhelmingly strong strike mandate.

This is a historic moment for our local.

Thank you to all of the GTAs who came out to vote - your support has been a tremendous reminder that the membership is behind us.

We wish to send special thanks to the Mobilization Committee and all of the organizers who have worked tirelessly to engage members. Without your unwavering dedication to improving our working conditions, we would not have the strength we have.

The Local is now calling for the formation of our local Strike Committee, which will shape the course of actions before and during labour action, including general strike. It is important that we strive to ensure every department is represented on the committee. Candidates should apply at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please include your name, department, and a brief outline of why you would like to participate on the committee.

Our next scheduled Conciliation date with the Employer is Tuesday, March 27, 2018. Either party can request a “no board” report. On the 17th day after the “no board” report is issued by the Ontario Minister of Labour, we will be in a legal strike position. The University will be in a legal lockout position.

We do not take labour action lightly and we hope the University does not continue to attempt to incite labour action.

In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Team (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.):
Matthew Coady, GTA and PhD candidate in Chemistry
Nadia Ivanova, GTA and PhD candidate in Anatomy and Cell Biology
Dmitrii Marin, GTA and PhD candidate in Computer Science
