Members of CUPE 2137 will be joined by striking members of Local 3903, teaching assistants at York University, along with members of CUPE Local 3896, workers at Senior Peoples Resources in North Toronto (SPRINT) and members of Local 2563, childcare workers at Victoria Day Care, on strike since June 29th.
