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
