Full Unit 3 membership ratifies offer

Almost 3/4 of members vote to ratify the agreement as Unit 1 keeps picketing


Unit 3 of CUPE 3902 has ratified its agreement, successfully avoiding a strike.

According to social media reports, over 70% of Unit 3 members, representing academic staff hired under contracts of less than one year, voted in favour of the tentative agreement.

The vote was the second of a two-stage ratification process beginning with a ratification meeting last week at which members voted to send the agreement to a full membership vote. Polls were then opened to all members of the unit to ratify the agreement.

Unit 1 members—representing TAs, course instructors, invigilators, and other staff—remain on strike.

Full details are pending.
