Members of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 3902 - Unit 1, representing over 4,000 contract education workers at the University of Toronto (U of T), have set a strike deadline of February 24. 

On February 16, students, workers, faculty, and community members will rally outside U of T’s Governing Council to support the efforts of CUPE 3902 to improve the quality of education at U of T.  

CUPE 3902 is bargaining for smaller tutorial sizes, guaranteed funding for upper-year PhD students, and increased support for graduate-student research. After eight months of negotiations, the U of T administration has not adequately addressed any of these concerns. 

WHAT: Community rally in support of quality education                                               

WHEN: Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. 

WHERE: Simcoe Hall,27 King’s College Circle, Toronto
