VANCOUVER—Stating that BC labour law does not prohibit picketing on university property Vice Chair of the BC labour relations board, Laura Parkinson, today threw out UBC’s request to move picketing off of university property.

Connie Credico, the CUPE national representative and coordinator of university bargaining is calling on the university to stop the side-line tactics and start moving towards a negotiated solution.

“This action on the university’s part was nothing but a colossal waste of time, energy and money,” said Credico. “All of which could have been directed toward a solution. If UBC is so concerned about the welfare of students who are being affected by this strike they would find a legitimate way to get people back to work. Bargaining would be an excellent start.”

Credico is emphatic that “CUPE members at UBC are looking for a fair deal and a return to normalcy.”
